Develop in Our Community

The purpose of the Land Use Development program is to support Las Cruces’ residents and civic leaders’ efforts to create and maintain a safe, prosperous, and livable community.  The Land Use Development staff does this by assisting with the appropriate use of the City’s Building, Zoning, Subdivision, and Business Registration regulations and standards.  These standards are utilized to ensure that property owners, residents, business owners, and the development community create a vibrant livable city.
