Urban prosperity and growth are always welcome in communities where new jobs are needed. But there is a tradeoff, as shown here where eventually a major roadway will be extended on the east side of Las Cruces, New Mexico toward the Organ Mountains. Pristine rural areas with native plants such as the desert willow shown here will need to make way for development. The No Dumping sign in the background also illustrates another problem of urban growth, when some people illegally dump trash into pristine arroyos and deserts.
