Economic Analysis: Protect the Public Lands in Doña Ana County For Future Economic Development in the Region

LAS CRUCES, New Mexico – A new report shows that protected public lands are a competitive economic advantage in southern New Mexico and Doña AnaCounty.  The analysis confirms that protecting the world-class public lands surrounding Las Cruces will aid the region’s economic development strategy. 

“Permanently protecting the iconic Organ Mountains and the surrounding natural treasures will boost our economy and benefit Doña Ana County. This Headwaters report explains how stimulating tourism, attracting new residents, and creating jobs goes hand in hand with permanently protecting public lands”, said Richard Majestic from the High Tech Consortium of Southern New Mexico. 

WHAT: On Monday, September 26th, Mesilla Valley community leaders will tour Sapphire Energy’s test and development facility in Las Cruces’ West Mesa Industrial Park. Sapphire is working to commercialize “green crude”—a renewable petroleum replacement that is produced from algae, sunlight and CO2.  Sapphire Energy believes that algae will become a very substantial agricultural crop, and make a major difference to the world’s energy balance.
