[ARCHIVED] Update: Tuesday's Public Impact Fee Meeting will be Virtual

East Mesa Public Safety Complex Building Exterior with Sign Reading East Mesa Public Safety

The City of Las Cruces will conduct a virtual meeting, via Zoom, on Tuesday evening 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 held three in-person meetings. The next meeting, planned for 6 p.m. on Tuesday, May 10, will be held 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 held: 

  • May 10 virtual meeting at 6 p.m. Registration: Webinar Registration - Zoom.
  • May 12 at 6 p.m. at the Dona Ana Community College East Mesa Campus Auditorium, 2800 Sonoma Ranch Blvd.


The Las Cruces Development Code also requires a public hearing to be held on proposed changes. The City of Las Cruces will hold two of these public hearings. 

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