Planning and Zoning


The P&Z department is the busiest office in the Village.  We receive applications for all zoning action:  subdivisions, site development plans (commercial), variances, special use permits, home occupation permits, and zone map amendments.  These applications require public hearings, and some are forwarded to the Governing Body (Council) with a recommendation for action after they have been heard by the Commission – zone map amendments and ordinance amendments.

The Commission initiates amendments to the land use code (regulations).  Commission recommendations are forwarded to the Governing Body for a 2-step process of public notification, reading, and adoption.

Commission and Public Hearings Code Enforcement Comprehensive Plan Building / Sign Permits and Inspections


The department does not retain land ownership or assessment records.  Those are kept at the Sandoval County Assessor’s office.  The Village does not enforce private covenants or deed restrictions.  Covenants and deed restrictions are filed at the Sandoval County Clerk’s Office.

The staff enforces Village ordinances, and only to the limit allowed by those ordinances.

The Village does not handle disputes about private easements, private roads (except where public safety is involved), water rights, or private agreements of any kind; these are matters between individuals.

Commission meetings, including public hearings, are scheduled for the 3rd Wednesday of every month, at 6:30 PM.
The meetings are held at the Court/Council Chambers located at 4322 Corrales Road (the Old Fire Station).
The entrance is at the east end of the building, next to the parking lot.

Planning and Zoning Meetings


Manuel L. Pacheco, Building and Zoning Inspector

OFFICE HOURS: 8:00 AM to 5:00 PM. Mornings are available for walk-in requests to meet with staff. Afternoons are appointments only. It is best to call for an appointment to ensure that the appropriate person will be available to see you.


Manuel L. Pacheco,

  • Mayor’s Friday Post

    Well, the winds of spring continue! We’ve been blown around pretty good this week and so may have downed limbs and branches – we do try to pick things up on Village property. However, if you spot something significant that we have missed, please call 899-8900 and let us know. I know there is concern about brush and trash build-up that occurs along Corrales Road (State Highway 448). The New Mexico State Department of Transportation owns Corrales Road and is responsible for keeping it maintained. However, volunteer organizations used to help clean up the road and I am making some calls to see if I can convince them to start up again. I will keep you updated.

    This week, I participated in “Leadership Sandoval County 2018” as part of the Mayors’ Forum, along with Bernalillo Mayor Jack Torres and Rio Rancho Mayor Gregg Hull. It was very informative and served to highlight our shared concerns and goals. The Police Department, as part of their continuing education, received training on responding to missing persons cases (Amber, Brittany and Silver alerts). Also, Officer Rogers, who organized a spring break reading program, Books and Badges, hosted a pizza party at Corrales Elementary for the class who logged in the most reading hours. Way to go!

    Again, it is supposed to be windy this weekend, so stay safe and let’s hope for some much-needed moisture!

    Hello everybody – We knew it had to happen – it is after all, spring. There is a high wind advisory for today, Thursday the 12th of April. Some have predicted we may have winds up to 60 miles per hour. Please be aware of your surroundings when the winds start up and be especially cautious. For example, it may not be the right day to be under all those trees in La Entrada Park (or own your own property either). Please check the message on Next Door from Chief Martinez for more detailed information. Above all, be safe! Jo Anne Roake

    Hello Village of Corrales and thank you for the advisory. We just moved to this great community this past fall and I’ve tried to join the Next Door community but for some reason the app does not find Corrales so I am unable to join. If anyone is able to help me with this I would greatly appreciate it. Thank you
