Joint Land Use Committee discusses Curry Road R closure

Freedom New Mexico

Discussion centered around procedures needed to close Curry Road R at a Wednesday afternoon meeting of the Joint Land Use Study’s policy committee.

More than a dozen people attended the meeting which was held at the Curry County Courthouse, County Manager Lance Pyle said.

Pyle said County Attorney Stephen Doerr gave a presentation outlining the procedures needed to close the road, an action that would ultimately have to be taken by the county commission.

Rudy Bauer also gave a report on the Joint Land Use Study, Pyle said.

The JLUS was commissioned to evaluate the area and provide information to assist Cannon Air Force Base and surrounding communities in coexisting.

Cannon officials have said Curry Road R’s proximity to the base perimeter creates security risks and have asked that it be closed.

The JLUS policy committee will next meet at 2 p.m. Sept. 27, Portales City Hall and at 6 p.m. JLUS public meeting in the Ingram Room at the Clovis-Carver Public Library to obtain feedback from the community on the study.
