The Mayor of the City of Las Cruces is seeking applicants willing to serve on the Mesilla Valley Public Housing Authority Board. To be considered, the applicant must live within the municipal limits of the City of Las Cruces. To apply, submit an application at onboard.las-cruces.org.

The Housing Authority Board consists of two appointees by the Doña Ana County Board of Commissioners, two appointees by the City of Las Cruces and a fifth appointee, which qualifies as a Resident Commissioner in accordance with rules established by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), who is nominated by the city- and county-appointed commissioners. Appointees serve staggered five-year terms.

Presently, the Housing Authority Board meets at 9 a.m. every third Tuesday of the month in the conference room of the Mesilla Valley Public Housing Authority, 926 S. San Pedro St. Meeting times and dates may be changed once vacancies are filled.

Matters that frequently arise for consideration by the Housing Authority Board include annual budgets, federally mandated planning documents, policy documents, tax-credit developments and the annual performance evaluation of the Housing Authority’s executive director. Meetings average about 90 minutes each. In addition to regular meetings, the Housing Authority Board is empowered to conduct special meetings and work sessions.
