LAS CRUCES, N.M. -

The Dona Ana County Commission is scheduled Tuesday to consider a proposal supporting a private firm's plans to build a $1 billion scientific ghost town.
    
The Las Cruces Sun-News reports (http://bit.ly/SdtUjS) that Pegasus Global Holdings picked a location south of Interstate 10 between Deming and Las Cruces in early December for the site of its project.
    
The project would be located mainly in Luna County, but a private access road could be in located in Dona Ana County.
    
The project's plans called for an uninhabited replica of a mid-size American city to help researchers test everything from intelligent traffic systems and next-generation wireless networks to automated washing machines and self-flushing toilets.
    
Last year, the firm had selected Hobbs for the project, but walked away citing problems with a land deal.
