Council to Consider Forming a TIDD at Former Las Cruces Country Club

City Council

The Las Cruces City Council will meet at 1 p.m. Monday for a regularly scheduled meeting and will consider adoption of a resolution declaring the City’s intent that could lead to the formation of a Tax Increment Development District (TIDD) for property proposed to be developed at the former Las Cruces Country Club.

The meeting will be conducted through a video conference. The work session will be televised on CLC-TV Comcast channel 20, online at CLCTV.com, or at YouTube.com/clctv20.

The City of Las Cruces Economic Development Department has been working with the property’s developer, LC Nova, LLC, on behalf of the majority property owners within the area, for the past year on the potential to create a TIDD to promote development at the area formerly known as the “Old Las Cruces Country Club,” 2700 N. Main St. This area was covered as part of the Apodaca Blueprint, which was completed by the City’s Community Development Department and adopted by City Council in July 2018 under Resolution No. 18-035.

The area is also in a federally designated Opportunity Zone, which means the Governor designated it as an area in need of development. TIDDs can be used to construct, operate, and maintain public infrastructure in support of development. TIDDs establish a baseline property and gross receipts tax (GRT) base, and as development occurs increasing the property and GRT amounts in the district, a portion of the increment is reinvested into the district to continue and support development.

In December, City Council passed Resolution No. 20-069 to establish guidelines for the use of TIDDs for financing the economic development of underutilized areas of the City. These TIDD guidelines and procedures allow for transparency of TIDDs as an economic incentive and will ensure that TIDDs are to benefit the public good.

In an effort to seek public input through video conferences, City Council asks residents who may have comments, concerns, or questions for any regularly scheduled or special council meeting or work session to please e-mail their City Councilor as follows:

District 1 – Councilor Kasandra A. Gandara at: kgandara@las-cruces.org
