Plan your development carefully!! Take a lesson from Tucson and the surrouding townships. Four years ago during the building boom, the motto was " dig up the desert as fast as you can and grow ". Pending water shortages are not the only problem. How about unmanageable traffic control? Brown outs are more frequent. The high speed internet is not so speedy anymore. The sewage treatment plants, well they speak for themselves. Air, noise and light pollution are on the rise. I doubt if the citizens of Las Cruces would call that "quality of life"! If you think you'll see green from development tax revenues, you'll be seeing alot more red instead!!

Huh and all this time I thought Sonoma Ranch was a success. I guess the Mayor and his small mind seem to think otherwise? I wonder if he could go down to Juarez and turn them around. You go Mayor!!

Yeah, sounds like we need to focus in instead of things like Puerta de Las Cruces.
