After failed attempts to sell a 60-acre parcel of land identified as A-19 in White Rock to a developer, Los Alamos County staff recommended the creation of a Comprehensive Master Plan for the property. In response, the county council approved hiring consultant team, Dekker, Perich, Sabatini Inc., for $316,105 during its regular meeting Tuesday.
Council also agreed to applicable gross receipts tax and a $20,000 additional services contingency for crafting the plan.
Steve Brugger, Housing and Special Projects manager, said the master plan will propose a commercial project to be built on A-19, adjacent to Fire Station 3.
The Department of Energy turned over ownership of the parcel to the county, and it was subsequently divided it into three tracts. Five acres were dedicated to the fire station, another tract will be the future location of the White Rock Visitor Center and the remaining 60 acres will be the focus of the master plan.
The plan will study the possibly of installing infrastructure in the parcel, subdividing it into smaller pieces and then marketing those parcels to developers. The county is betting that the cost of the master plan as well as development costs will be recovered in the sale of the land.
