Curry County (County) is requesting funding for the placement of a permanent electronic (LED) sign to be located at the Road Department office on NM209, which traverses north/south through Curry County. The County is located on the far eastern side, approximately at the center point, of New Mexico bordering Texas. The County is the fourth smallest in the State and is comprised of 1,408 sq. miles, with the majority – 1,405 made up of land – and only 3.2 sq. miles covered in water. Most of the County is rural, with farming, ranching, and agriculture as the primary industries. Only 20 percent of the County’s population, which is just under 50,000, lives in rural areas, with the largest population living in and around the County Seat of Clovis. The goal of the Board of County Commissioners, the Elected Officials, and the Staff of the County is to serve the citizens of the County with quality services in a customer-friendly manner. The County administration offices are located in Clovis, and the County provides a wide range of services to the community. The County manages the Adult Detention Center, the County Fairgrounds and Events Center, fire and safety services, and five volunteer fire departments located in the rural areas of the County, the Sheriff’s Office, County road maintenance, public services, and administration for County services. Additionally, the County provides the following services to community members: the DWI Program; the Curry County Health Council; an Imagination Library; indigent, youth, and volunteer services; water conservation information; and partners with Cannon Air Force Base on multiple activities and opportunities. The County has undertaken some significant projects in the last several years, including renovating the historic courthouse in downtown Clovis and connecting it to the Adult Detention Center, constructing a new 57,000 sq. ft. multi-purpose livestock pavilion at the County Fairgrounds, and is in the beginning stages of planning a new recreational complex and performing a needs assessment. The County looks to expand its services through collaboration with area service providers, neighboring counties, and communities to construct a regional in-patient behavioral health complex currently in the planning phase. The County has received federal funding to develop a Safe Streets for All plan to identify transportation safety issues and develop recommendations for roads and travelers, including the rural incorporated communities.
