according to google maps highway 195 already has a name- Lakeshore Road.

Alan Briley, City Manager:  Thank you for your comments. Yes the City Council is aware of the google maps name and other GPS and other maps have names as well. One suggestion is to leave it as it....

Has Elephant Butte chose a Name yet for NM 195 ? The sentinel reporting so . True or false

Alan Briley, City Manager:  False - Not officially. The Council was in a workshop last meeting and threw some names around and Butte Blvd stuck and was used in discussion. The City Council will have to officially make a motion and have affirmative action to rename a street. There is a lot to renaming a street with changing maps, emergency dispatch, changing signage; not to mention to have everyone along Highway 195 change all their address information. Long way to say no or False - the name is not officially changed. And new street name signs have not been ordered. Stay tuned - we are still accepting ideas and suggestions for names. There is also a possibility that the Council will elect not to change the street name and leave it Highway 195. Thanks for the question. I did get comments regarding the newspaper and radio article and sent them the same message that I sent here.

I wanted to submit a name for Highway 195 but could not find anyplace to do so. I recommend America Avenue. How do I officially submit this suggestion?

Alan Briley, City Manager:  Thank you for your suggestion. This is an appropriate place to make your suggestions, or our Facebook Page, or coming in and telling us. We have also got suggestions in the mail when they pay their utility bills to the City. Thanks again.

City of Elephant Butte Site

SUnsetThe City of Elephant Butte is located immediately west of Elephant Butte Lake State Park, New Mexico's largest lake. The area is in the northern edge of the Chihuahuan desert offering high desert climates with warm days, cool nights and very low humidity levels. A wonderful area for year round outdoor activities including golf and fishing.

In July 1998, the City of Elephant Butte became New Mexico's 101st incorporated community. For over a year preceding the incorporation, a group of aggressive, community-minded citizens completed population census and financial analysis, as well as a surveyed citizen attitudes toward incorporation before the actual vote was held. After incorporation, a solid Mayor and Council form of government has been established. There has been statewide recognition of the Rapid progress in establishing Elephant Butte as a major small community.
