The Las Cruces City Council will meet at 1 p.m. Tuesday, Jan. 3, 2022, in Council Chambers at City Hall, 700 N. Main St., for a regularly scheduled meeting.
Among items City Council will consider is a Resolution that would establish the Fast Track Permitting Program which would accelerate the review and approval of qualifying economic development projects within the city. The proposed Fast Track Permitting Program will provide a framework defining the purpose, objective, and procedures including project eligibility requirements, the application process, and general guidelines.
In July 2021, City Council approved the Las Cruces Innovation and Industrial Park Master Plan. One of the strategic goals of the master plan is to improve the Innovation and Industrial Park’s image and visibility, which includes streamlining the development review and approval process. The proposed permitting program also would promote and offer a business-friendly environment.
Also at Tuesday’s meeting, the Council will consider a Resolution to adopt a pilot program for the installation of hygiene stations throughout Las Cruces. Hygiene stations would include portable toilet facilities and handwashing stations.
The goal of the proposed hygiene stations is to abate nuisances that negatively affect public health and safety by aiding indigent individuals.
