Hope springs anew in Los Alamos

-A A +A

Our View

In case you’re a little slow to emerge from your cave after a long winter’s nap, spring has sprung in Los Alamos. 

Leaves are back on the trees, flowers are blooming and a young man’s thoughts turn to downtown revitalization and sprucing up the look of the town… Huh?

Well, there are things going on that give one a sense of renewed hope and optimism for the future of Los Alamos. 

The current composition of the county council gives the sense that it may be more forward-leaning or a bit more activist in its approach to some of the nagging problems that seem to be holding the town back. 

The council’s willingness to at least attempt to address property standards is a good sign. If the councilors can then put some teeth into it and (gasp) actually enforce the code, then all the better.

Then, council should continue on its recent path toward plucking the biggest thorn from the town’s side: deducing a means by which to breathe new life into the housing scene. This prickly issue is quickly coming to the fore as many of the well-worn quads and other similar post-war era dwellings become increasingly difficult to sell and insure.

On a sunnier note, there appears to be a genuine mounting momentum to get downtown revitalization underway.
