In mid-April, teens and community members got their first glimpse of a proposed design for a new teen center.
The Los Alamos County council approved $4.2 million in funding in FY2013 to design and remodel the community building for use as a teen center. The remaining tenants at the building (U.S. Forest Service, New Mexico Extension Service, Youth Activity Center and PAC-8) are to remain in their current locations.
Based on comments submitted at the two public meetings held in April, NCA Architects and Planners, AIA, is currently reworking their proposal. Public meetings to review those designs are planned in June.
NCA’s Project Architect Tom Wilbur made the presentations, along with Los Alamos County Project Manager Wayne Kohlrust.
“What you’re seeing here is a first shot at what it could be, a starting point,” Kohlrust said.
New design options were already being floated during an evening meeting for adult community members, based on feedback at an afternoon session for teens.
The original concept was to have a multipurpose room with a snack bar and dining area, TV area and game area on the main level, along with a quiet zone, two classrooms, a video game room and staff offices.
The lower level would have held a performance area, a practice room, an editing room and a multipurpose space.
