General Obligation Bond Projects

Go Bond Project Updates

The City of Las Cruces has established an easy, online way for the public to check the status of the General Obligation (GO) Bond projects approved by voters. The GO Bond portal provides improved transparency and customer service to Las Crucens.

In a special mail-ballot election held between July 24 and August 21, 2018, Las Cruces voters approved four GO Bond questions totaling $35.6 million:

  1. Shall the City issue general obligation bonds, payable from property taxes, in an amount up to $16,900,000 to construct improvements to parks, including sports fields and other related facilities? Approved 57%
  2. Shall the City issue general obligation bonds, payable from property taxes, in an amount up to $9,800,000 to construct a new animal shelter facility and related improvements? Approved 67%
  3. Shall the City issue general obligation bonds, payable from property taxes, in an amount up to $6,200,000 to construct replacement fire station facilities for Fire Station 3 (at 390 N. Valley Drive), including acquisition of necessary land? Approved 70%
  4. Shall the City issue general obligation bonds, payable from property taxes, in an amount up to $2,700,000 to construct and improve recreational walking, jogging, and biking trails, including acquisition of necessary land? Approved 58%
