The resolution requires ‘community benefits agreement’ between the city, New Mexico United and representatives from neighborhoods adjacent to the proposed stadium when a location is picked. It would be in place before a lease is signed.

The agreement would address transportation, traffic, affordable housing, jobs and make sure the stadium provides services like after-school soccer programs.
