[ARCHIVED] City Council to Meet Oct. 17, 2022

City Council Without Masks

The Las Cruces City Council will meet at 1 p.m. Monday, Oct. 17, 2022, in Council Chambers at City Hall, 700 N. Main St., for a regularly scheduled meeting.

City Council will consider the adoption of an Ordinance that could approve the redistricting of Las Cruces’ six City Council districts. The Las Cruces City Charter requires that there be a “periodic review of the boundaries of the districts” and that each Council district “shall contain as nearly as possible substantially the same population-based upon the most recent federal census.”

City Council passed Resolution 22-031 creating an ad hoc committee to work with Research & Polling, Inc., of Albuquerque, to provide public input and evaluate various redistricting proposals. Since April, the committee met every two weeks and reviewed 10 different concept maps.

The committee narrowed the concept maps to four that the Council has reviewed. The four maps were presented to the City Council at a Work Session on Sept. 12, 2022.

The City Council came to a consensus at that work session to move forward with two concept maps, J and K, and could approve one of those at Monday’s meeting.

Additionally, at Monday’s meeting, City Council will consider a Resolution authorizing the City to submit a grant application to the Federal Aviation Administration and approve a five-percent cash match commitment of as much as $440,000, for the grant award for the Las Cruces International Airport terminal development project. The grant application would be for a request of as much as $8,360,000.

Las Cruces International Airport wants to apply to the FAA to develop a terminal building that would provide services to interstate customers for passenger air services, as well as for private charters and aircraft. On Sept. 22, 2022, the FAA released the second round of Airport Terminal and Tower Program funding opportunities through the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law to provide $1 billion a year for the next five years to develop airport terminals and airport owned control towers.

Submission of the grant to the FAA is due by Oct. 24, 2022.

Existing buildings at Las Cruces International Airport are insufficient to accommodate air travelers and the related amenities for travelers. This funding would allow the Las Cruces airport to develop a terminal for interstate travel complete with the required Transportation Security Administration screening component. 

The project includes the renovation of the airport building at 8960 Zia Boulevard and the construction of a TSA control building, which will provide areas for ticketing, baggage, TSA screening, rental cars, administrative offices, and a parking lot expansion.

Monday’s meeting will be televised live on CLCTV, Comcast Cable channel 20, and in high definition on Comcast Cable channel 928. The meeting also will be accessible online at and at
