Despite costing six coveted parking spaces, the Los Alamos County Council agreed during its regular Dec. 14 meeting to bring landscape features to Sullivan Field parking lot.
Council approved the landscape design option at an estimated cost of $75,000-$100,000 and directed county staff to return with more developed plans, a cost estimate and a budget revision. Staff also was instructed to coordinate the effort with Los Alamos Public Schools, which owns Sullivan Field.
The parking lot at Sullivan Field isn’t typically praised for being attractive. Before construction started on Diamond Drive, the lot was a slab of asphalt riddled with potholes.
Dick McIntyre, Parks Division manager, said the option council approved includes 15-foot by 10-foot planters placed about 60 feet apart and housing shrubs and small trees.
As part of the project, shade trees would be planted along the Mesa Field roadway and the Lemon Lot also would receive planters.
The landscaping will match what is featured along Central Avenue, McIntyre said.
