SUMMARY
Synopsis of Bill
Senate Bill 566 appropriates $55 thousand from the general fund to the Local Government Divi-
sion of the Department of Finance and Administration (DFA) in FY07 for a growth management
plan for Taos County.
FISCAL IMPLICATIONS
The appropriation of $55 thousand contained in this bill is a non-recurring expense to the general
fund. Any unexpended or unencumbered balance remaining at the end of FY07 would revert to
the general fund.
SIGNIFICANT ISSUES
DFA noted that this bill would add $55 thousand to a growth management plan already being put
together for Taos County through of a $50 thousand Community Development Block Grant
planning grant that DFA awarded the county in 2005. The intent of the 2005 grant is to imple-

ment the county's 2004 comprehensive plan, including but not limited to map the Countys exist-
ing conditions, create a future land use scenario, identify future growth areas and their associated
infrastructure needs and costs, set community character guidelines to serve as the basis for future
zoning districts, and incorporate economic development strategies as outlined in the regional
comprehensive economic development strategy. Taos County anticipates the tasks outlined
above are beyond the budget provided by the CDBG grant and seeks legislative support to com-
plete all the tasks, according to DFA.
ADMINISTRATIVE IMPLICATIONS
DFA has adequate staff and resources to administer these funds.
