Planning and Development


The City of Gallup is working to update its Land Development Standards, which includes: 

Zoning Code
Subdivision Regulations
Annexation Policy 

Updated Land Development Standards will provide citizens, policymakers, and developers with the tools to ensure that growth takes place in a consistent and desirable manner, and in ways that make sense for the City of Gallup.

The Diagnostic Report is the first step in the update process. The Diagnostic Report is a technical review to evaluate the strengths and weaknesses of the current Land Development Standards, and makes preliminary recommendations for updating the Zoning Code and Subdivision Regulations. 

The first element of the update of the Zoning Code, Module 1, is now available for public review. Module 1 contains proposed changes to the zoning districts for the City of Gallup and provides updated land use tables and definitions. The guidelines in Module 1 help to manage the types of development that may be pursued in different parts of the City. 

Additional sections of the updated code will be posted online in the coming months, and public comments will be considered as part of the final update. The next step, Module 2, will contain design standards (e.g. height restrictions and landscape requirements) for each zoning district, as well as proposed changes to the subdivision regulations. Module 2 will be available for public review this winter. 

Module 3 will address the process and procedures for zone changes, subdivision applications, and other land use and development issues, and is expected to be completed in early 2018.
