Collaboration plays role in development

County council and San Ildefonso Pueblo discussed joint economic endeavors

By Kirsten Laskey

A number of joint projects to enhance economic development could be on the horizon between the San Ildefonso Pueblo and Los Alamos County.
Some opportunities to collaborate lie along N.M. 4.
Potential projects are being considered on land the tribe owns near the intersection of N.M.4 and Rover Boulevard, Tribal Attorney Peter Chestnut said during a recent joint meeting between the pueblo and county council. The project could be commercial or residential, or it could be related to the Los Alamos National Laboratory if federal funding is available.
Chestnut said the land might be used for affordable housing to support an influx of construction workers who might move to the area for LANL jobs.
He said a joint development may be possible because Los Alamos County utilities exist nearby and could serve the tract.
Council Chair Mike Wismer said the project would help achieve one of the county’s goals related to affordable housing.
