The City of Las Cruces Arroyo Preservation Plan will provide policy guidance to: improve flood control & drainage functions; protect arroyos in their natural state; protect native vegetation and wildlife habitat; help protect private property; and provide additional recreational opportunities. The Plan is currently being completed. Please click the links below to access various components of the draft plan.
At their public hearing on June 24, the Planning & Zoning Commission voted to postpone their recommendation for adoption to the City Council so that additional public and stakeholder input may be gathered. The draft will go through another revision which takes this input into account, at which time it will again be considered by the Commission. The current draft of the plan is available for review (see below--link to revised draft 6/24/14).
