me and my husband are thinking about moving to the las cruces area. we are planning a trip in a couple of months. i had a couple of questions though. my husband does construction so is there many jobs in that feild? he does about everything so even if there is a specific feild that is more needed should be fine. i do dog grooming, is there any need for that? my daughter is 3 so i was wondering about the schools, plus i have 2 step daughters that may move w/ us, most likely after we have already moved and settled in...they are 7 & 10. last thing i was wondering about was property, i'm really hoping to find a lot at the min of 1.5 acres w/ a small house or even a trailer until we can build our home, would that be wishing for too much? thanks in advance for any replys .

I am surprised no one has answered this. As far as construction jobs -- Las Cruces and that whole area is booming. (There is a thread with this title.)

About the rest? I don't know.

Tranzlucent.........lots of construction jobs in Las Cruces. Home construction is booming up on the east mesa and soon to start on the west mesa and also commercial work in the downtown with the rivitalization going on there.

Dog grooming.....well alot of retirees have been moving there and many of them have pets so i'm sure the dog grooming business is doing well there in Las Cruces.

I'm sure other ''Cruceans'' will answer......

6/3

thank you both very much. i'm very happy to hear there is plenty of construction going on. i was wondering also if there was affordable rent around this area? our house might take longer to sell especially if we are putting it on the market this fall, and i'd like to get out of this city asap.
