The city of is considering the approval for development of a 1,703.9 acre block on the East Mesa, south of U.S. Hwy 70. The proposed name for this subdivision is The Vistas at Presidio II.

This land contains the site were Las Cruces lawman Pat Floyd Garrett was killed on February 29, 1908. The site was marked some 30 years after Pat’s death by Jarvis Garrett, Pat Garrett’s youngest son.

Our mission, as Friends of Pat Garrett, is to ensure that the site where the death occurred is set aside for a memorial to Pat, and that the marker set up by Jarvis is retained and protected.
