Robert Palacios started this petition to New Mexico Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham and

Someone needs to be held accountable! These are our jobs.  These are our small businesses.  These are our neighbors.  This is OUR city and OUR community! The affects of the Valley Drive Project have been felt by too many.  From our own Las Crucens to our surrounding community members, far too many businesses have felt the negative impact of the poor planning on behalf of the New Mexico Department of Transportation (NMDOT).

The NMDOT and AUI Inc., the contractor in charge of the project, need to understand that we do things differently here in Las Cruces. Let us come together and make sure we never have a project so poorly managed and executed as the Valley Drive Project. 

We, the undersigned, make the following demands:

1. The City of Las Cruces Officials have a stronger voice for our community

2. The State of New Mexico have a complete review and summary of the Valley Drive Project to explain to the community in full detail the shortcomings in the planning and execution of the project.

3. That no contractor shall have the discretion while in the City of Las Cruces to make changes to the planned project outlines without a public input meeting. 

4. The New Mexico Department of Transportation needs to provide additional training to our regional office to better manage these extensive projects in city limits. 

5. This is our community and we will not accept another business closing their doors due to a construction project.
