The vision for SNA, as stated
in the “Vision Statement and Goals” is that of a “rural
community which continues to encourage residential and agricultural use
of the land with appropriate compatible commercial development. Central
to the vision is the conservation of our scenic beauty, rural nature and
existing natural resources of the area. We envision constant efforts towards
improvement of the safety, security, heath, welfare, peaceful enjoyment,
and economic well being of our residents.”
Because of the commitment to our vision for SNA, the board is always presented
with interesting issues to address.
The SNA supports a website “ www.stagecoachhills.com” which
contains the following:
Calendar, Announcements, Newsletter, Tune Drive RMA, Land Use Ordinance,
Permits, Board and Minutes.
Please take some time to look at the various pages. It contains valuable
information for all who have interest in what’s going on.
Long Range Infrastructure Committee is looking for ideas for the future
of the SNA area. If you are interested in how the SNA is developed in
the future, you can join this committee by contacting John
Durham, the SNA President.
The Development Standards

All community property owners are members, whether they pay dues or not,
so please join in, come to our meetings, and participate in helping to

in the SNA Checking Account at People’s Bank in Taos, NM. Some of
these funds have been used to pay for the annual corporation filing, Escrow
for the land settlement of the Tune Pit, postage, copying when needed,
Some of the latest issues that the SNA board has been addressing:
-Development Standards Board – A change in workflow for new building
permits was requested March 4, 2010. This request was sent by letter to
the Taos County Planning Department. It requested that all requests to
build be sent to the SNA and the SNA would route the request to the SNA
Development Standards Advisory Board. The Advisory Board would then review
it, and, the SNA Board of Directors would approve or deny the request.
This has occurred and we are currently using this approach. This avoids
potential liability issues for the Advisory Board. Learn more here.
-Land Use Ordinance – The County is currently updating their land
use ordinance. Please see the Land Use page
for more information.
