Downtown Plan Approved! Thanks for everyone’s help

In the meeting of December 5, 2016, Las Cruces City Council adopted the update of the City’s Downtown Master Plan.

The Council’s approval of the Downtown Plan is the latest in a series of plan and coding updates shaped through community collaboration. Just one popular outcome of those efforts: The new Plaza de Las Cruces, which has already been embraced by residents and visitors alike.

You can review each stop of the process that led to the Council’s approval of the final Plan draft by checking out the diary updates preceding this one. And you can review background on the goals of this process and the groundwork that preceded the latest efforts here.

Everyone who participated in all the discussions and in each refinement of the draft Plan should take a bow. Their work led to policies likely to accelerate the implementation of many of the goals they identified and refined over the course of this historic process.

Congratulations, Las Cruces!
