The Winds of Change
The start of the new year has brought good things to downtown Las Cruces. The end of January has started a rise in new business prospects. With this momentum building so early in the year, 2017 is looking good for the downtown community.
The way-finding signage is up at sites across downtown and the Mesquite district. With eleven different locations, you can follow the signs for a historic downtown walking tour. For more information on way-finding signs take a look at our blog post.
This month’s traffic downtown has been a little congested due to the construction work at the site of My Brother’s Place. Once the project is complete Las Crucens will be able to enjoy a new retail and restaurant area. Until then, drivers should expect a one way lane on S. Water street going towards Amador. Be mindful that the S. Main intersection towards Amador is not a four-way stop; this is coming from personal experience of accidentally pulling out in front of a car.
The beautiful weather these past few weeks has been beneficial to downtown as well. Visitors are walking up and down Main Street enjoying the weather, shops, and Farmer’s Market. As the forecast becomes Spring DLCP is gearing up for our annual Avenue Art event. This event shows off local artist talent in the hopes of winning a cash prize. This year DLCP wants to incorporate some more entertainment during the event; can you guess what DLCP’s plan for the event is? Leave us a comment bellow!
Downtown is flourishing more each day with new opportunities for businesses, retail, and restuarants. Although people might not notice these subtle differences in the community they are present in side-by-side images of downtown’s transition.
