Hobbs picked as site of scientific ghost town

-A A +A

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) — The mayor of Hobbs, N.M., says his city has been chosen as the site for a $1 billion scientific ghost town where researchers will be able to test everything from renewable energy innovations to intelligent traffic systems and next-generation wireless networks.

Mayor Sam Cobb confirmed to The Associated Press that the southeastern New Mexico community was selected prior to a news conference Tuesday with Gov. Susana Martinez and the investors developing the Center for Innovation, Technology and Testing, or CITE.

Pegasus Holdings and its New Mexico subsidiary, CITE Development, had announced last month that the list of potential sites had been narrowed to two. Hobbs beat out a location near Las Cruces.

Developers were looking for open spaces. Another plus was the proximity to federal research facilities like White Sands Missile Range in southern New Mexico and Los Alamos and Sandia national labs.
