Citizens sign petition to tank West Jemez Bypass

-A A +A
By Jennifer Garcia

County council will have another petition to address during Tuesday night’s meeting to be held at 7 p.m. in the Community Building.

On Jan. 22, 2009 Gregory J. Kendall submitted a petition on behalf of 63 people, requesting that the West Jemez Bypass Road be removed from the Capital Improvement Project list and tabled. According to county documents, the West Jemez Bypass Road has a long and complex background which includes the filing of a lawsuit against NNSA, a settlement of that lawsuit, the design of the Bypass Road which is nearing completion, the granting of partial funding for this project from both the state and federal governments, the study of alternate route alignments, the need to add intersection work on Diamond Drive immediately south of the Los Alamos Canyon Bridge, necessitated changes to the Research Park Master Plan and the way it fits within the Capital Improvement Plan.

Staff is expecting to set a full discussion on the matter at the March 3 meetings, as the Feb. 24 meeting agenda is already dedicated to public hearings and action items surrounding agreements with the schools on the use of the Airport Basin and related matters.
