Community Development Director Rick Bohn moves on

-A A +A

After six years, the LA resident decides to pursue other interests

By Kirsten Laskey

Before Rick Bohn, the position of Community Development Department Director frequently changed. For the past six years, however, Bohn has been able to bring stability to that spot but nothing can last forever. Bohn will retire this year with his last official day being March 31.
Bohn has seen a lot accomplished during his time with Los Alamos County. A few of the  major successes, he said are the implementation of the new capital improvement project process and the decision for the municipal building. “I was glad we were finally able to make a decision and move forward,” he said.
But, “the big thing is just having stability,” Bohn said.
He is also proud about the CDD’s communication efforts. Government, Bohn said, is all about communication. By interacting with people, ideas come forth. Chance encounters, he said, can be very fruitful.
Los Alamos is the ideal setting for having interactions with the public. Bohn said he was amazed when he ran into a county councilor once in the grocery store. Not only did the councilor say hello, he said, but also the individual knew Bohn’s name.
This isn’t something Bohn has experienced in previous jobs. Before coming to Los Alamos, Bohn worked for the city of Aurora in Colorado.
