Committees & Groups

Architectural Review Committee (ARC)


It is the responsibility of the Committee to meet periodically to review and rule on proposed exterior changes, modifications and/or improvements to homes and property within the Aldea de Santa Fe Association. The Committee will assure the aesthetics of the community are not compromised and the intent of the Association’s Governing Documents and Design Code are not violated. Many specific situations are unique and the ARC must decide and rule on each situation in the best interest of the entire Community in order to maintain property values.

The ARC is responsible to the Board of Directors for the approval or disapproval of all exterior modifications made to homeowners’ property within Aldea de Santa Fe jurisdiction. It is the responsibility of each homeowner to request written authorization from the ARC, prior to making any exterior alterations to homes or property.

Guidelines will be written, periodically updated, published and made available to all homeowners by Aldea HOA.

Residents may contact the ARC via the resident login page.

Upcoming Public Events

Permaculture Committee (PC)

The Permaculture Committee acts to advise the Aldea HOA board and manager on how best to apply permaculture techniques and propose permaculture initiatives. These initiatives would be used as best practice techniques to assist the community in making better use of our limited water supply.

The committee is composed of interested Aldea residents and is led by a chairperson that is appointed by the Board of Directors.  Each committee member is expected to become knowledgeable about permaculture issues through individual study and through information disseminated by committee members, external expert organizations and/or state and local governmental agencies.

One of our recent projects, in conjunction with Santa Fe High School woodworking class, is installing 75 nesting bird houses throughout the Aldea community. 

Permaculture Committee Birding Group

The Aldea Birding Group (ABG) is a group of Aldea residents who share an interest in learning more about birds, especially those that live in or visit Aldea. We maintain a list of birds seen in Aldea and a Resource Guide. In addition to learning more about the birds that we see in our yards and our open spaces, our goals are to improve the habitat within our neighborhood and share information about birding in New Mexico. We occasionally have talks and organize field trips with experienced birders.  The ABG is a fun place to learn more about birding and make new friends.  Birders of all levels should feel welcome to join us.  Learn More
