The City of Las Cruces will conduct five public input meetings concerning updates to the Public Safety Impact Fee.


The Public Safety Impact Fee is a fee assessed on new residential and non-residential construction and has been in place since January 2012. The first of five meetings on public safety impact fees will be at 6 p.m. Thursday, April 28, in the auditorium at the Dona Ana Community College East Mesa campus, 2800 N. Sonoma Ranch Boulevard. The public is invited to attend.


Public safety impact fees help pay for police and fire department equipment, buildings and land acquisition. The fees are usually one-time payments used to fund capital improvement projects directly related to the city’s growth. Any potential fees would be collected from new home and commercial development projects.


The public safety impact fee meetings will be at the following times and dates: 

  • 6 p.m. April 28 at the Dona Ana Community College East Mesa campus auditorium, 2800 Sonoma Ranch Boulevard.
  • 5:30 p.m. May 3 at the Sage Café, 6121 Reynolds Drive.
  • 5:30 p.m. May 5 at the Frank O’Brian Papen Center, 304 Bell Ave.
  • 6 p.m. May 10, a virtual meeting. Registration: Webinar Registration - Zoom.
  • 6 p.m. May 12 at the Dona Ana Community College East Mesa campus auditorium, 2800 Sonoma Ranch Boulevard.


The Las Cruces Development Code also requires a public hearing to be conducted on proposed changes. The City of Las Cruces will have two of these public hearings at: 

  • 1 p.m. May 21 at Las Cruces City Council Chambers, 700 N. Main St., regarding Land Use Assumptions.
  • 6 p.m. May 25 at Las Cruces City Council Chambers, 700 N. Main St., regarding Capital Improvement Plans and Impact Fee.
