The City of Las Cruces will conduct a virtual meeting, via Zoom, on Tuesday regarding proposed changes 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 City has had three in-person meetings. The next meeting, at 6 p.m. Tuesday, May 10, will be conducted via Zoom. Those interested in participating in the virtual meeting can register at Webinar Registration - Zoom.
Public safety impact fees help pay for police and fire department equipment, buildings and land acquisition. The fees are normally 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 final two public safety impact fee meetings will be:
- A virtual meeting at 6 p.m. Tuesday, May 10. Registration: Webinar Registration - Zoom.
- At 6 p.m. Thursday, May 12 at Doña Ana Community College East Mesa Campus Auditorium, 2800 Sonoma Ranch Boulevard.
The Las Cruces Development Code also requires a public hearing be conducted on proposed changes. The City of Las Cruces will have two public hearings.
- At 1 p.m. May 21 at Las Cruces City Council Chambers. 700 N. Main St., regarding Land Use Assumptions.
- At 6 p.m. May 25 in Council Chambers at City Hall. 700 N. Main St., regarding Capital Improvement Plans and Impact Fee.
