County, schools reach agreement on Trinity Site that will open way for demolition and development

By Roger Snodgrass

After years of closed-session negotiations, Los Alamos County Council announced that the basic terms of an agreement had been reached with Los Alamos Public Schools on a complex land partnership and exchange related to the Trinity Site Revitalization Project

After a final closed-session meeting Tuesday evening to discuss “the purchase, acquisition or disposal of real property,” the council agenda reserved its final piece of business for “possible discussion” of the draft documents on the development of Trinity Site.

As it turned out, the agreement was announced but there was very little discussion.

A “Summary of Material Terms of the Transaction Documents” was released that outlined the terms of the various leases and disposition of Trinity Site and Airport Basin properties.

More information and presumably more discussion will be in store.

A motion by Councilor Nona Bowman, seconded by Councilor Vincent Chiravalle, called for staff to finalize the documents for approval at a joint meeting of the council and school board on Nov. 12. The motion passed by a 5-2 vote with Councilor Robert Gibson and Councilor Ralph Phelps opposed, but without further comment.
