The Council hereby finds and declares that:
(a) The Pueblo, through the Northern Pueblos Housing Authority, contracted a study by Indigenous Design Studio + Architecture, LLC, to examine land use within the Pueblo boundaries, and as a result, the 2014 Land Use Plan (report) was developed.
(b) The 2014 Land Use Plan has been provided to the Pueblo de San Ildefonso through both hard copy and electronic forms, provided to the Executive and Legislative Branches, as well as housed at the Northern Pueblos Housing Authority offices.
(c) The 2014 Land Use Plan that was prepared for the Pueblo identifies 3 Schemes (or schematics) as options for use as a foundation to do further, detailed land use planning.
(d) The Council understands that none of the 3 Schemes currently fit the dynamic of the stages of planning and development that has been and is occurring since the document was presented in 2014, however, in order to continue enhancing and preparing for planning, preparation and development, one selection is needed to move forward.
(e) In order for pueblo to proceed into the next phase of developing a Master Community Land Use Plan, the Council needs to select one "Scheme" from the 2014 Land Use Plan as a basis to work off of and to use as a framework for long-term planning.
(f) The Council has determined the need to adopt and ratify a selection of one of the schematics from three (3) viable alternatives that were provided and discussed.
(g) The Council has chosen to adopt and ratify the selection of 'Scheme 3' for use in development of the Master Community Plan. A copy of Scheme 3 is attached as Exhibit A.
