The City of Las Cruces will hold five public input meetings concerning updates to the Public Safety Impact Fee.

The Public Safety Impact Fee is a fee assessed on new residential and non-residential construction and has been in place since January 2012. The first of five meetings on public safety impact fees will be held at 6 p.m. Thursday, April 28, in the auditorium of the DACC East Mesa Campus. The public is invited to attend.

Public safety impact fees help pay for police and fire department equipment, buildings and land acquisition. The fees are normally one-time payments used to fund capital improvement projects directly related to the city’s growth. Any potential fees would be collected from new home and commercial development projects.

The Las Cruces Development Code also requires a public hearing to be held on proposed changes. The City of Las Cruces will hold two of these public hearings.

The following meetings/hearings will take place on:
