City of Aztec
Comprehensive Plan

Update 2020

The Plan

Updating the Existing Plan

The City of Aztec completed their last Comprehensive Plan in 2002.

Community Profile

A Comprehensive Plan brings together facts, figures, and stories about the people and places that make a community thrive.

Goals & Objectives

The Plan will outline Goals & Objectives for future implementation policies and projects based on the community profile and community input.

The Process

Not all those who wander are lost.


Local leaders decided in the spring of 2020 that it was time to update the 18-year old City of Aztec Comprehensive Plan. The City has hired Consensus Planning, Inc., to help with the planning process.

The Comprehensive Plan will address all aspects of the community, including land use and community character, economic development, housing and neighborhoods, parks, community facilities and services, transportation, infrastructure, hazard mitigation, and implementation.

The Survey

The City of Aztec invites residents and business owners to participate in a community survey on how Aztec should grow and develop over the next 20 years. The survey kicks off the update to the City of Aztec Comprehensive Plan. The Plan touches on all aspects of the community, including land use, economic development, housing and neighborhoods, public services and facilities, infrastructure, transportation, hazard mitigation, and more.

Interested community members can take the survey online at: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/AztecCompPlan . Printed copies of the survey are available on request from the City of Aztec. The survey will remain open until August 1, 2020.

Public Meetings

The first public meeting for the update to the City of Aztec Comprehensive Plan took place online on July 30, 2020. The purpose of the meeting was to introduce the project and facilitate a listening session on the issues currently faced by Aztec and the community’s vision for the future. The meeting took place on Go to Webinar due to the State of New Mexico restrictions on large gatherings during the COVID-19 pandemic. Presentation slides are posted in PDF format.

Farmington Daily Times press coverage of the meeting: “As Aztec plans for future, residents identify outdoor recreation as an important component.”
