Yet Another Hearing

Sign announcing yet another hearing for the 16-acre parcel near Tortugas
Doña Ana County Staff is recommending yet again that the 16 acres just west of Tortugas Mountain be zoned EC3c (Planned Commercial District, 3-acre minimum lot size, attractive and efficient retail and personal service facilities of integrated design, with conditions).  Let's face it:  no matter how many times the Extra Territorial Zoning Commission keeps shooting this down the Doña County Staff is going to keep having hearings until this parcel is eventually zoned commercial.  After all, what's more important, the preservation of land or the making of monetary profit?
Let's get moving
