FARMINGTON — San Juan County officials said they will ask the county commission to table the vote on the county's first land-use code for two months as the county responds to residents' suggestions on land-use zones.

The San Juan County Commission is scheduled to meet at 4 p.m. today at the county administration building in Aztec.

The commission is scheduled to vote on the land-use code. In August commissioners voted in favor of a notice of intent to adopt the land-use code.

Since that vote, the county has received a significant amount of feedback for and against the code during a public meeting and in written responses, San Juan County Executive Officer Kim Carpenter said.

Carpenter said the county will make adjustments to its proposed land-use districts during the next two months. The commission will vote on the code Dec. 3. Copies of the land-use districts are available on the county's website and at the county administration building.

The land-use code would apply to private land outside of Farmington, Aztec and Bloomfield and the Navajo Nation.

Also during today's meeting, commissioners will hear a presentation on the status of the Four Corners Economic Development, Inc.
