We are excited to announce that DACU has been awarded a grant from Partners for Places, which is a project of the Funders’ Network for Smart Growth and Livable Communities.
DACU will work with residents in the Bellamah/Nevada neighborhood to create connections through civic engagement, urban art, and timebanking. Let us know if you live in this great neighborhood and would like to be involved in this exciting work!
This is part of a larger project of the City of Las Cruces Sustainability Office that will increase safety and address heat island effects by slowing traffic through creation of a green corridor on Nevada Avenue. DACU’s work will also will be integrated with nearby Lynn Middle School, which has just been named the city’s first community school.
