Planning & Zoning Department
The Planning and Zoning Department provides a myriad of services to the citizens of Socorro. The department conducts meetings for the Planning & Zoning Commission, Board of Adjustments, Historical Landmark Commission and the Museum Commission.
Inspectors from the department conduct building and plumbing (residential/commercial) inspections on a daily basis between the hours of 9:00 AM and 5:00 PM when inspections are called in 24 hours ahead of time.
Our plan checkers thoroughly check the customer’s building plans to ensure compliance and safety. Walk-ins are welcomed. Appointments are preferred to insure that the plan checker can spend the appropriate time reviewing your project.
When submitting building or residential plans, please ensure that the plans are drawn to scale, are complete and that you have all the documentation necessary. Our plan checker will check and approve your house or building plans on a first come first serve basis. Walk-ins are welcomed to come in and talk with the plan checker after 4:00 PM and review their project.
The code compliance specialists work diligently to ensure that the city remains free of trash, weeds, junked vehicles, etc. All complaints are answered in a very timely manner and property owners in violation are advised to clean up their properties before citations are issued. Once citations are issued, they are forwarded to the Socorro Municipal Court where non-compliant property owners are fined.
