“Alamogordo was founded in 1898 as a terminal for the railroad. The community’s activities promoted the growth of logging, tourism and health related enterprises. A national survey rated Alamogordo as one of the 50 healthiest places to live in the U.S. The basic beginnings are still in place. Many of the early buildings are still occupied by businesses. Tourism related activity and light manufacturing contribute to the economy. White Sands National Monument is a major attraction as are the New Mexico Museum of Space History and the Lincoln National Forest.”

The arrival of two new F-16 squadrons at Holloman Air Force Base means there are 800 to 900 support jobs to fill which will bring a huge influx of individuals and families to the Alamogordo community. To recruit and retain this new workforce, the Otero County Economic Development Council (OCEDC), the City of Alamogordo and leading local businesses are collaborating on an exciting initiative called the Alamogordo Enhancement Project. The goal of this effort is to enhance Alamogordo’s reputation and to make the community a more attractive place for residents and visitors.
