November ballot includes $51 million in bond funding for NMSU projects

New Mexico voters will be asked on Nov. 8 to approve several general obligation bond questions on the back of their ballot, including two that will provide critical funding for the New Mexico State University system. There is no tax rate increase associated with approval of these bonds.

If approved by voters, GO Bond 3 will provide $51.1 million for construction, renovation and modernization projects across the NMSU system, including $22.5 million for engineering facilities and $15.5 million for nursing, health and education facilities at its Las Cruces campus. NMSU-Grants and Doña Ana Community College would also receive funding for campus-wide infrastructure improvements, renovations and equipment.

The New Mexico Department of Agriculture, which is headquartered at NMSU’s main campus but serves the entire state of New Mexico, would receive $10.5 million to replace its outdated headquarters facility. A separate bond issue for libraries, GO Bond 2, will provide $6 million statewide for university library resources, of which the NMSU system will receive a portion.

The request before voters includes $22.5 million to replace and modernize the 50-year-old Thomas & Brown Hall on the Las Cruces campus to expand student-centric and experiential hands-on learning facilities for students from across campus. The project will foster research opportunities through multi-disciplinary lab space for student projects and faculty collaboration. The new design will also include a Learning Community designed to enhance student success. Read More >>
