The Comprehensive Zoning and Land Use Ordinance is intended to create orderly, harmonious, and sound development in order to promote the health, safety, and general welfare of the residents and real property owners within the boundaries of all the defined subdivisions designated and declared to be a part of the Alto Lakes Special Zoning District.
Alto Lakes is a residential and recreational community located north of the village of Ruidoso, New Mexico.
The Ordinance is 70 pages and the color Zoning Map is 11 x 17. The Ordinance, including Zoning Map and the list of proposed amendments, may be ordered from the District.
Requested copies are $1.00 a page payable to ALSZD, along with your mailing address, to ALSZD, PO Box 578, Alto, NM 88312.
Zones described in the Ordinance, and shown on the Zone Map, are generally based upon the land uses described in the covenants for the subdivisions which lie within the Alto Lakes Special Zoning District. To our knowledge, the District Zone Map is the first and only visual rendering of permitted land uses since development was commenced nearly 40 years ago.
