New Downtown Zoning to Boost Goals of Updated Master Plan

With the Las Cruces City Council’s unanimous approval of a new zoning approach for the Downtown, the ongoing update of the 2013 Downtown Master Plan gets an important implementation tool.

What’s important about the just-passed zoning code is that it enables many of the goals affirmed during public discussions and workshops. Key among those goals: A less car-dependent Downtown with plenty of walkable options for living, working, shopping and entertainment.

For more about all the steps that led to this point, check out the news posts preceding this one. And congratulations again to all who’ve participated in this important process.

    Just one question It says less car dependent downtown what happens to the market vendors customers on saturday and wednesdays. A majority of the business are snow birds and out of towners visiting. With less area to park does that not cut down access to the downtown area to these visitors and also cut the business they bring to our market vendors on wednesdays and saturdays.
