The City Council delegated certain powers and authority to the EPC when it was created. The EPC has the power to amend the City's Official Zoning Map in response to zone change requests. It has the authority to decide on site development plan approval requests for SU-1 zoned and shopping center designated sites. The EPC, in its advisory role to the City Council, reviews and provides recommendations on annexation requests, certain zone change requests, proposed amendments to the Zoning Code and adoption of major amendments to Rank I, II and III Plans - including the Comprehensive Plan, area plans and sector plans. Appeals of EPC decisions are heard by the City Council.
EPC decisions are based on compliance with the Zoning Code, as well as compliance with applicable goals, policies and intents of City adopted Master Plans (Rank I, II and III Plans) such as the Albuquerque/Bernalillo County Comprehensive Plan. Zone change requests are evaluated for compliance with the City's policies and criteria for zone map amendments found in Resolution 270-1980. It is the burden of an applicant to show why a zone change is appropriate. Depending on the scope and nature of a request, other City plans, policies and ordinances may influence EPC decisions and recommendations.
