Two options exist for Los Alamos County’s new Municipal Building. The first keeps the building at its previous location, nestled between Ashley Pond and the police station. The second moves it several blocks to the east, at 15th and Trinity Drive where Hill Diner, Magistrate Court, and the Elks and Shriners clubs currently reside.
County Council heard intricate details of both options during a special session beginning Thursday night and ending early this morning in Council Chambers.
During the nearly seven-hour-long meeting, architects and developers, potential tenants and interested citizens weighed in, the vast majority favoring the 15th and Trinity site.
A site selection review committee also recommended that location citing several reasons:
The new Municipal Building complex will replace the worn-out facilities along that stretch of Trinity Drive, presenting a better image for the entrance to town;
it will combine with commercial property – it will serve not only to provide county office space but also to generate revenue for the county and schools;
economic development will be enhanced through proposed new retail shops, a restaurant and the creation of new jobs;
most property owners and tenants intend to relocate to the Entrada Business Park;
