[ARCHIVED] Open House at Fire Station 3 Planned for Saturday

Open House Fire Station 3 Update

The Las Cruces Fire Department is hosting an open house Saturday afternoon at the newly constructed Fire Station 3.
The open house will be held from 2-5 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 15, at Fire Station 3, 380 N. Valley Dr.

Bottled water, sodas and light snacks will be provided. Firefighters will be on hand to give tours of the new facility. LCFD’s inflatable Fire Safety House will be erected outside to help teach youth how to safely escape a burning building.

The Fire Station 3 project was approved by voters in the City’s General Obligation Bond special election in 2018. The cost of Fire Station 3 is approximately $6.2 million out of a total of $35.6 million GO Bond. Other projects in the 2018 GO Bond include the East Mesa Public Recreation Complex, which is currently under construction, and improvements to recreational facilities, parks and trails.
On Nov. 8, voters will be asked to consider four new General Obligation Bond projects: 

  • $10 million for Fire Station 9.
  • $2 million for parks improvements.
  • $5 million for Phase 2 of the East Mesa Public Recreation Complex.
  • $6 million for the Affordable Housing Fund.

These projects will not increase the City’s portion of the property tax rate.
