Residents of Las Cruces and central Doña Ana County are invited to give their input during the second phase of the Mesilla Valley Metropolitan Transportation Plan (MTP) community meetings during October and November. The Mesilla Valley Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) is in the process of updating the MTP, a long-range transportation plan that guides planning, construction, operation, and maintenance of the multi-modal transportation system in the MPO area.

All public meetings begin at 5 p.m. at the locations listed below:

Friday, Oct. 25, 2019 Munson Senior Center

975 S. Mesquite St, Las Cruces

Tuesday, Oct. 29, 2019 Radium Springs Community Center
