The Lopez Village Planning Review Committee (LVPRC) was appointed by the County Council to develop a subarea plan proposal of the Lopez Village Urban Growth Area. It will include a Vision, goals, policies, and land use maps that will guide future development. The plan builds on the results of past participation efforts and design workshops. It will also be designed to address existing concerns and needs. Based on prior planning efforts, the Committee focused on many issues.
The LVPRC approved a draft plan and development regulations on July 27, 2018, to go through the adoption process with San Juan County Planning Commission and County Council.
After a joint Council and Planning Commission public hearing held September 21, 2018, the Planning Commission recommended changes in October to the draft Lopez Village Plan, development regulations, standard plans and implementation plan.
