Carrizozo Lincoln County News (Newspaper) - August 22, 1976, Carrizozo, New Mexico Final hearings set by Barbara storms Monitor staff writer final Public hearings on the proposed revised zoning map to accompany the revised zoning ordinance for los Alamos county will be held at a special meeting of the planning and zoning commission on september 15 and possibly on september 22. Following the hearings the map and ordinance will be forwarded to the county Council for final legislative action. In order that the Community might be Well informed about All zoning changes the Monitor will publish the proposed map in four sections beginning today with the White Hock area a copy of the Complete map also is posted in the planning office in the county municipal building. The new zoning documents Are a culmination of More than two years of intensive study research committee work and Public hearings by the planning commission in an Effort to update and improve zoning regulations in the county. According to county planner Pat Brown both the planning staff and the commission in revising the ordinance and map. Attempted to create districts which More realistically represent existing land uses delete districts which Are no longer applicable nor serve a purpose in the present or proposed Community create districts which Are More flexible and less rigid As to uses and site development standards within them create districts which Are More specialized As to specific areas create districts which enhance the Protection and conservation of certain areas such As an historical District and wilderness Protection districts the main goals Brown said were to change existing land use or Structure situations As Little As possible in order not to create nonconforming situations and to provide for More contemporary zoning philosophies in areas As yet undeveloped. Some of the major changes which have been proposed by the commission Are a a Public lands owned by the county or the los Alamos school District Are now classified in the pm Public lands District rather than having several different zoning classifications As in the past. This simplifies land inventory systems and the revised zoning map provides an easy visual assessment of size number and locations of Public lands. Nearly All of the planned development areas in White Rock have been changed to i Standard single family residential classification which More accurately reflects the actual subdivision Type of development which has taken place. The bulk of the downtown area Between Central and Trinity and extending to the Northern part of the Community business Center has been placed in a civic Center commercial status which allows a mix of several kinds of uses and permits flexibility of design but establishes planning commission review authority Over How development takes place. A new historical District acts As an overlay protector Over Fuller Lodge the museum the Indian ruins. Ashley Pond. And the Bathtub Row houses in that area to insure preservation of the land and existing structures the multiple family residential classification wreck kills Doug Keller Doug Keller 11, son of or. And mrs Dean Keller of 533 Rover was killed saturday morning in a car wreck in Dallas Texas. He and his brother David were on their Way to six flags when the Accident took place. Details Are not available but apparently David was uninjured services Are tentatively planned for monday at 1 in Trinity on the Hill episcopal Church. Survivors include the parents and two Brothers. David and Steven. In lieu of Flowers the family has requested that donations be made to one of two organizations which assist youth in some Way Christian outreach wars care of the Christian Center Albuquerque or dare to drug outreach program Albuquerque. Has been divided into two categories one which provides lower density dwelling units per acre equal to the present r-3 District and will generally be applicable to the existing a a Quad areas in North Community and a higher density District which provides for larger developments on less land area primarily in the general area of the civic Center this latter District also has provisions for condominium development which were not found in the existing zoning ordinance. The r-l-8 single family residential districts found in the North and Western Community areas have been reclassified to the r-2 two family District. The Basic reason for this change is that All the present r-l-6 districts in those areas have a mix of both single and duplex Homes. The r-2 zoning was left to better reflect the existing situation. The number of commercial districts was reduced from four to three and Industrial from three to two because the present and forecast size of the Community does not warrant the present number of districts in either category. A new research and development District was created for scientific Laboratory activities located within the urbanized areas. A new single family residential District re residential estate was created which like the a a District in la Senda and Pajarito acres has a minimum lot size of two acres. Because this District is proposed for More urbanized areas it does not provide the livestock and agrarian uses of the a a District. A Complete list of the new zoning districts and their definitions Are found in the proposed revised zoning ordinance.
