Abstract: The South Valley is a diverse area at the heart of the rural-urban interface in the Middle Rio Grande Valley. The proposition of forming a municipality in this area is full of possibility and rife with challenges. It is the intent of this report to offer some assistance with the process of incorporation and to offer an examination, however brief and incomplete, of issues of concern that will accompany any incorporation. The report consists of three parts: a historical review of incorporation in New Mexico and the Southwestern United States; an examination of geographical, social and political issues unique to the South Valley study area; and an examination of possible partnerships that will be needed for the success of a new municipality.
