Fund the Amador: A bridge to cultures and generations

Jo Ruprecht

The Las Cruces City Council will hold a work session later this year on the Amador Project, the ongoing renovation of the historic Amador Hotel for adaptive re-use.

(Editor’s note: The work session was originally scheduled for this summer, but has been rescheduled for September.)

Dating from the 1880s and located at 180 W. Amador (northeast corner of Amador and Water), this city-owned property is in the Downtown Tax Increment Development District (TIDD), making infrastructure enhancements to the two-story adobe building eligible for TIDD funding.
TIDD monies don’t come from the City’s general fund; TIDD dollars are generated
