The city of Las Cruces is excited for the future.
In his annual State of the City address, Las Cruces Mayor Ken Miyagishima outlined plans for continued growth in several areas, including downtown revitalization, as well as revising the City’s mission statement.
The new statement reads in part, “The mission of the city of Las Cruces is to provide customer focused services to residents, businesses, and guests.”
The Mayor says the change is key to the city’s growth and development. Miyagishima hopes to keep Las Cruces a high-quality place to live and work.
Looking ahead, Miyagishima says he’s working to improve the City’s finances.
“One of the things I’m going to be working on in the next couple of years is a different viability financial plan,” Mayor Ken Miyagishima said. “I want to make sure that the city of Las Cruces will remain a strong financial footing.”
The mayor says big things are on the horizon. In the next few months, Miyagishima says an announcement is coming that he says will be a significant asset to the City and will provide ongoing revenue. He also highlighted future opportunities for economic development and the City’s continued investment in renewable energy.
