Draft Neighborhood ‘Blueprint’ Ready for Your Review

Las Cruces City staff and the project consulting team have refined ideas emerging from the weeklong public workshop in June into a draft “blueprint” for redevelopment in the West Amador neighborhood.

The document now moves through the usual City cycle of review and refinement into a final version to put before the City Council. Councilor Nathan Small, who represents the district that includes the West Amador neighborhood, talks about what comes next:

If you’re new to the project, you can read an overview of its goals here and an FAQ here. And in the posts immediately preceding this one are reports of progress at each step along the way.

Comments and questions are welcome. Please use the space below.
