In 2019, Las Cruces communities had opportunities to provide public input on a proposed Short Range Plan and Master Plan Study for the Las Cruces Museum System. The Las Cruces Museums engaged the team from AOS Architects of Santa Fe, along with WOLF Consulting of Las Vegas, NV, and Creative Strategies360 of Santa Fe, to facilitate the creation of a Short Range Plan and a Museum Master Plan Study for the Museum System. Community input was vital to the development and implementation of Museum goals, priorities, and strategies.
The Short Range Plan, Renewing Our Purpose, provides a guide to Museum activities and services through the fiscal year 2026, while the Master Plan Study provides an analysis of the facilities and explores possibilities for the future development of the physical environment and possible programming within the Museums’ environments.
Public feedback was utilized to refine the goals of the Short-Range Plan and the possibilities of the Master Plan Study. The refined plans were presented to City Council on June 21, 2021.
