Council approves three projects

Historical archives decision put on hold

By Jennifer Garcia

Three of four phase two Capital Improvement Project applications were approved during Monday night’s County Council meeting.

The following were approved for the next phase:

• White Rock Visitor Center and Budget Revision.

• Los Alamos County Golf Course Community Building and Budget Revision.

• Lighting upgrades for North Mesa Sports Complex and Budget.

The fourth CIP application on the agenda, Los Alamos Archival and Records Center and Budget Revisions and Budget Revision did not get the green light, however.

Councilor Nona Bowman said she was worried about the location of the historical archives.

“The historical archives at the municipal building doesn’t seem like the right location,” she said. “The location should be closer to the historical and cultural district.”

Bowman also said that a 66,000-square-foot municipal building seems rather large and added that the acreage on Central Avenue (the L.A. Apartments site) could be used for something else, such as affordable housing, condominiums or offices.

“I’m trying to think about the future. I’m concerned that we are not keeping the foot traffic in what I call the post office area,” she said.
