County records and historic archives will have a home after the Los Alamos County Council approved an archive and county records facility as add-alternatives to the municipal building design-build project.
Council approved the facility during their regular meeting Tuesday night. The county records center will be 6,500 square feet while the historic archives are planned to cover 7,500 square feet. The approximate cost for the add alternates is $2.7 million.
During the council meeting, Capital Projects and Facilities Department Director Anne Laurent said after the former municipal building was demolished, county records were scattered. They were stored at the Pajarito Cliffs site, as well as in various departments.
Archives were located in Fuller Lodge, which Laurent said is not an ideal place.
Having the county records and historic archives at the municipal building is preferred because the municipal building’s site, which is off Central Avenue, is close to the Los Alamos History Museum as well as major county
agencies. It also offers synergy and other sites such as the Pajarito Cliffs Site could be expensive.
