[ARCHIVED] Additional Details and Public Input on TIDD Proposal for Former Country Club Property

The Las Cruces City Council will conduct a Special Work Session at 1 p.m. Monday, June 29 to get more information and to allow for more public input regarding a proposed intent to create a Tax Increment Development District (TIDD), for the former Las Cruces Country Club property at 2700 N. Main St.

The special work session will be conducted by video conference and will be televised live at 1 p.m. Monday on CLC-TV, Comcast Cable channel 20. The special work session will also be available online at CLCTV.com and at YouTube.com/clctv20.

On June 15, the Las Cruces City Council voted 6-0 to table consideration of adoption of a resolution to declare the City’s intent to consider the formation of a TIDD for the property where the former Las Cruces Country Club was located. Instead, the council scheduled the special work session so it could obtain more information and enable further public input.

LC Nova, LLC, property developers, has applied to the City seeking to create a TIDD to promote the development of the property. This area was covered as part of the Apodaca Blueprint, which was completed by the City’s Community Development Department and adopted by City Council in July 2018 through Resolution No. 18-035.

In December 2019, City Council passed Resolution No. 20-069 to establish guidelines for the use of TIDDs for financing the economic development of underutilized areas of the City. These TIDD guidelines and procedures allow for transparency of TIDDs as an economic incentive and will ensure that TIDDs are to benefit the public good.

Public concerns raised in several emails sent to council members when the proposed TIDD was initially considered June 15 and having a more thorough understanding of the developer’s request, led to the council’s decision to conduct a special work session.

The area is also in a federally designated Opportunity Zone, which means Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham has designated it as an area in need of development. TIDDs can be used to construct, operate, and maintain public infrastructure in support of development. TIDDs establish a baseline property and gross receipts tax (GRT) base. As development occurs, increasing the property and GRT amounts in the district, a portion of the increment is reinvested into the district to continue and support development.

The proposed resolution can be found at this link.
