“The War Department taking a family’s land for the war effort is understandable,” write the authors Los Alamos: the Ranch School Years, 1917-1943. “Less acceptable is knowing that the family homestead became part of a golf course.”
Well, 64 years after it was built by the Atomic Energy Commission, Los Alamos County wants to expand that golf course, affecting at least 25 acres (including the Walnut Creek and Woodland trails) used year-round by walkers, runners, cyclists, bird watchers, and nature enthusiasts.
Although the golf course is an asset to the community, the proposed (tax-payer raised) $6- and $8.6-million expansion plans are not worth the damage that will occur to some of the most frequented and accessible natural areas within city limits.
The controversy has generated much hullaballoo in recent weeks – some in county meetings, but the majority online.
