Carlsbad city council approves land sale in hopes of home growth

CARLSBAD, N.M. (KRQE) – Relief may be coming for the housing shortage in Carlsbad.

The Carlsbad city council has approved the sale of several parcels of land owned by the city in the hopes they will be turned into apartments or homes.

The oil boom sparked a population increase and there isn’t enough housing to go around.

According to the Carlsbad Current-Argus, the city parcels will be sold at auction.

Carlsbad recently passed incentives to encourage housing developers to invest in the area. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
