Las Cruces has grown over the last twenty years moving from an agricultural community with a university to the award-winning master-planned community that is Las Cruces today. Las Cruces has been blessed with first-class land developers who worked hand in hand with community leaders to create both commercial and residential developments that have produced a quality lifestyle and many residential neighborhoods with desert southwest homes from the most affordable to the most luxurious. Each of the subdivisions has capitalized on the majestic vistas of the Organ Mountains whether viewing the gorgeous sunsets from the west mesa to the spectacular sunrises on the east high desert plateaus. Many of the subdivisions enjoy parks and walking paths, some are placed in conjunction with beautiful golf courses. Collectively their wisdom and professionalism has made Las Cruces a great place to live and retire.
