ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. – After several years of planning – and its fair share of opposition – the Albuquerque City Council on Monday night approved plans to switch up zoning districts for certain properties, including residential and commercial ones.
The plan is formally called the Integrated Development Ordinance, or IDO, and it involves adding several more categories based on the density of homes or businesses in a given area of Albuquerque. According to the city’s website, the plan is that IDO will help “protect establishes neighborhoods, streamline the development review/approval process and promote more sustainable development.
One of the changes involved in the plan, for example, is that mixed-use developments on the city’s West Side must contain a commercial component. You can see how the zoning changes will affect you by clicking here.
While city councilors approved the plan, Mayor Richard Berry still has to sign off on it.
