The Los Alamos Monitor’s headline, “Council short on options,” of Sept. 13, regarding the Trinity Site should not be just a lament. It should be a call to action.
The economic viability of the Trinity Site “lifestyle center” concept was uncertain when it was developed in 2005-06, long before investment money for such projects dried up. Two developers, first Boyer and now NADG, have been unable to implement even scaled down versions.
Why should we think a third entity, Kroger / Smith’s, whose interests are much narrower, would make the dream happen?
Our options presently are so limited because generations of councilors, county staffers, and various advisors have refused to even consider developing any alternatives. Too many have too much personal or political capital invested to admit the old concept is not working. They keep flogging this dead horse instead of exploring options that might serve us better.
