City approves aerospace park
Las Cruces Sun-News
The Las Cruces City Council has unanimously adopted a resolution identifying 182 acres of undeveloped land just south of Las Cruces International Airport for a commercial aerospace business and research park.
Initially, most of the land was projected to be used for aerospace research and development. In October 2006, Rocket Racing League announced intentions to build an aerospace park on 171.35 acres just south of Las Cruces International Airport. But the deadline to formally acquire the land passed on Sunday.
