Welcome to the New Mexico Uplift
Outdoor Recreation Stakeholder Portal!

Public Land Solutions has contracted with the State of New Mexico to conduct an outdoor recreation survey and stakeholder meetings in every Economic Development District. This information will be synthesized into a proposal to enhance and develop outdoor recreation assets across the state to help grow and diversify local economies.

We’re excited you’re interested! Please share your contact information below. Emails, phone numbers, and names will NOT be used for any other purpose other than to provide email announcements for upcoming stakeholder meetings and updates on the project in your area.

Outdoor Recreation Stakeholder Meetings

Over the course of the next few months, PLS will be hosting and facilitating stakeholder meetings in the Northwest, Southwest, and Central Economic Development Districts. Initial kickoff stakeholder meetings will be held via Zoom and in-person follow-up meetings are scheduled a few weeks later. Check back for meeting updates.
