2020 Schedule of Fees

The Community Development Department has not had an increase in building permit fees for 14 years, since 2006. A lot has happened regarding innovations in technology and administration costs in terms of doing business and providing improved and responsive customer service to a growing community.

The various increases help cover the costs of high volume activity, hire additional inspection staff, software and technology updates, and innovation that improves customer service.

 The City of Las Cruces is asking members of the public for any comments or concerns they may have regarding these fees. Please send your comments or concerns by email to If you have questions about any part of the powerpoint presentation, please email those questions to the same email address and we will email you to discuss your individual and specific question.
