Note on Zones:

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.

We were recently sent the Proposal presentation for creating the Alto Lakes Water and the Zoning District (Thanks, Earl!) and thought we’d post it to the website for others to see the rationale that was behind creating the Water and Zoning organizations. Click on the photo to the right to view the 21 February 2004 pitch that was presented by the Long-Range Planning Commission to the Club, the Village of Ruidoso, and to Lincoln County on the benefits of establishing the Water and Zoning districts.
