-A A +A

Visitors to the Atomic City will find navigating their way through the downtown area much easier this summer, if all goes according to plan.

During Tuesday night’s county council meeting, Los Alamos Commerce and Development Corporation Executive Director Kevin Holsapple addressed the council, giving a PowerPoint presentation and a life-size cardboard example of what the kiosks would look like.

The project started in July of 2008 when council approved an award of the Central Avenue Streetscape Project to SG Western, Inc. and established a project budget in the amount of $1,768,908 for improvements along Central Avenue.

In November of the same year, staff provided council with a briefing on additional Central Avenue Streetscape Project Improvements that were funded by a supplemental MainStreet grant award. At the Nov. 3, 2008 meeting, Councilor Michael Wheeler made a motion to “accept the New Mexico Main Street award of $80,000 and apply such funds to the cost of purchasing and installing kiosks, a banner support structure and a wireless public address system and return, if necessary, for any contract or budget revisions.”

That motion passed 7-0.
