Mayor’s City Update

In every corner of Rio Rancho, progress is occurring.  We see it through road improvement work, new homes being built, expanding medical facilities, and investment by the private sector via new businesses and property redevelopment.

Recent survey results show that residents overwhelmingly believe Rio Rancho is a great place to live and that quality of life is high as a result of such things as police and fire/EMS services, libraries, parks, and the public school district.

The key to sustaining this positive momentum is continuing to work together and making investments where we live, where we raise our children, and where we work.

To view my 2019 State of the City Report video to see what we have achieved, and what is on the horizon, please visit

Only together can we keep Rio Rancho recognized as the best place to live in New Mexico!
