Hunt Communities - Land and Community Development

There is another master planned community for the northeast with about 15,000 acres but will have to wait due to the credit crunch.
Hunt is helping develope the Arena project....NOT Mesa Del Sol.
As for planned communities Albuquerque has several, as a matter of fact I live in one, Ventana Ranch!

I want to both compliment and criticize the members who've posted recently in this thread. You've mostly done a good job of following this part of the Terms of Service:

Quote:
If you disagree with something, say so, but explain WHY.
You're offering a lot of facts and explanation with your replies. I appreciate that, because usually discussions with this much bickering end up with a series of replies containing nothing but insults.

But you need to give more thought to whether your posting style follows this portion:

Quote:
Be civil, no personal attacks, flaming, or insults. We may attack ideas (politely) but we do not attack the speaker of the idea. Be careful with your words, there is a point where being direct crosses a line into blunt, in-your-face hostility. Please, report bad posts instead of engaging in flame wars on the boards. Insulting another member or a moderator will not be tolerated anywhere on this website.

Please continue this discussion without the insults. It could end up as that kind of discussion I mentioned before and those are a big mess. I don't want to have to clean up a big mess and you don't want your posting privileges to be swept away with my mod broom.

I will have to fix it. You still have not answered my question pertaining El Paso-Las Cruces becoming one Metro Area and your assertion that it will never happen due to the citizens of Las Cruces not allowing because they will get short changed with federal monies?? Well that is totally incorrect because if that were to be the case than half of the metro areas in this country would not be able to include other states. Again, an MSA is just a designation given by the US Census Bureau for statistical purpose. So yes, El Paso-Las Cruces will become a designated metro area real soon and that alone is a larger metro area than Albuquerque by almost 100,000.

Care to provide a link. This is the same agency that will be designating El Paso-Las Cruces as an MSA wich by the way has 100k more than Albuquerque.

The BRAC expansion of Ft Bliss and Biggs Field is creating a city the size of Santa Fe (70,000) east of Ft Bliss on thousands of acres with a price tag of a whopping $4.4 billion dollars!! The best part is that they are ahead of schedule!! You can see the New City rising in the desert east of Ft Bliss. http://www.elpasoinc.com/showArticle.asp?articleId=2716 (broken link)

Considering that Las Cruces gets local TV and (some) radio programming from El Paso, I would bet that LC-El Paso is already considered as one area for someone's purposes.
