The Zoning Permit Process In Angel Fire, New Mexico

If you’re thinking of moving to Angel Fire and curious about the zoning permit process, we have some answers for you. First of all, you will want to note if the property falls under the Angel Fire Resort homeowners association. The resort property is usually south of Sage Lane. So, you will want to check first. In order to avoid fines, don’t even do site clearing until the AFPO Environmental Architectural Control Committee (EACC) and the Village of Angel Fire have approved the required documents. These two entities have separate application procedures. Sometimes, people don’t realize this. They also perform their own inspections. At first, it feels strange, but eventually it’s just old hat. The EACC enforces the rules of properties inside the Angel Fire Resort membership area. If you have any questions, just contact them. Here’s the phone number: 575-377-1135

What About Wetlands?

If your property is located in a wetland or has wetland areas, you must also contact the U.S. Army Corp. of Engineers. This is how everyone must do it, not just Angel Fire residents. Here’s their phone number: 505-342-3171.

These steps must be taken before you can get a zoning permit. Then, you can  take all of these documents to the state to get your building permit.
