DPAC collaborates with New Mexico Main Street, a nonprofit organization administered through New Mexico Economic Development Program, and a local Main Street organization. The partnership assists communities with planning and design for downtown revitalization. In the spring of 2009, DPAC had the pleasure of working with the Deming Main Street organization. The following design interventions envision ways in which Deming Main Street program can utilize its existing assets--its historic building stock, diverse communities, location, and climate--to develop a vital downtown for locals and visitors. They are the outcome of twelve weeks of work by a team of twenty planning, architecture, and landscape architecture graduate students and faculty from the University of New Mexico.
