Public Safety Impact Fee
Public Safety Impact Fees for Fire and Police
Public Safety Impact Fees help pay for buildings and equipment that benefit all residents of Las Cruces. One of the newest facilities is the East Mesa Public Safety Complex located northeast of the intersection of Sonoma Ranch Blvd. and Lohman Ave.
The City of Las Cruces completed this 35,000 square-foot, two-story building that houses Fire Station 8, the Police Department’s East Area Command and Codes Enforcement in 2017.
The City will be holding several community meetings through May 2022 to provide more information about the impact fee process, how fees are calculated and how they affect residents, developers, and the community.
If you’re interested in more information, would like to be placed on the meetings invitation list, or have questions, please contact Fire Chief Jason Smith (575) 528-3473 or email PublicSafetyImpactFee@las-cruces.org and provide your contact information.
