COUNTY OPENS ONLINE STORE FOR EASIER ACCESS TO RECORDS

COUNTY OPENS ONLINE STORE FOR EASIER ACCESS TO RECORDS

Anyone looking to download maps, county codes or community plans will soon be able to skip the trip to the Doña Ana County Government Center and access those products online.

The Community Development Store, an online marketplace for county products, is a project spearheaded by the Doña Ana County Community Development Department. Free of charge, anyone with Internet access can download a copy of any existing county map, copies of county codes, and community plans, like the Master Plans currently in development for Berino and Rincon. Oversized and customized products will still be available for a fee via mail or through visiting the department in person.

“Before we opened our online store, products could only be requested over the phone, through email or in person,” said Deputy Assistant County Manager Chuck McMahon. “There wasn’t a system in place to make customers aware of what products we have to offer. The Community Development Store will be a valuable tool for anyone who needs immediate access to this information.”

McMahon says new products will be continuously added to the store, and any changes will be updated in a timely manner. He also said feedback from users and requests from the public are highly encouraged.

Most products are free to download through the online store. Anyone without access to a computer or the Internet may still use one of the computer stations at the Community Development Department inside the Doña Ana County Government Center. Copies can be made for a nominal fee.

Requests for products can still be made in person or by telephone, (575) 525-5505. All payments for oversized requests or customized products must be made through the County Treasurer’s Office, which accepts cash and credit cards (in person only), as well as checks and money orders.

Visitors to the Community Development Store can access products by visiting www.donaanacounty.org/development/catalog.
