[ARCHIVED] Las Cruces Metropolitan Redevelopment

Downtown Las Cruces closed Street with decorative walk

The City of Las Cruces will be hosting two public information sessions to answer questions and collect community input regarding the designations of new Metropolitan Redevelopment Areas (MRA). Areas for consideration are within the City’s infill area or the central area of the City. Details for the sessions are located below.

The designation would allow Las Cruces to create an MRA plan that includes extensive community engagement to plan for further economic development and housing improvements. MRA plans facilitate public-private partnerships to assist in economic development, and improvements to infrastructure and housing. Downtown Las Cruces has already been designated as an MRA, and the designation has helped the community’s efforts to revitalize downtown over the last several years.
