LCVA News – April 1, 2014

Neighborhood Watch Program Meeting

Due to increasing concerns about break ins and burglaries there will be a Neighbor Watch Program meeting at 6 p.m., tomorrow, Wednesday, April 2 at the La Cienega Community Center. Santa Fe County Sheriff personnel will be in attendance to provide information on how to protect our community.

Lot Splits and Community Development Review Committee

The proposed lot split in La Cieneguilla was approved by the CDRC on March 20. Since the request was an exception to the five-year residency requirement and not a variance the issue will not go before the County Commission. The LCVA regrets indicating the issue would go before the Commission.

There was another lot split in La Cieneguilla on Camino Torcido Loop allowing two homes on a one acre lot that was recently approved by the County Commission. This variance request was unknown to the LCVA but is being researched.

Through all of this one issue that has become increasingly clear (and made clearer by a La Cieneguilla resident) is the need to re-establish our local community development review committee. This will be a topic on the April LCVA Board meeting agenda and will require legislative action.
