With an already tight budget and $600,000 less coming from state funding, Los Alamos Public Schools is looking for ways to find money.
The district currently owns property at 288 DP Road, known as parcel A-15. On Jan. 11, 2006, the federal government transferred the land to the LAPS district and though the land has been vacant, there may be a possibility that the district could soon see rental dollars coming in for that property.
In December 2010, the school district submitted a rezoning application for the property, asking that it be changed from F-L (federal land) zoning to M-2 (Heavy Industrial) zoning. That request was granted and the land now has an M-2 zoning.
At last week’s work session at Mountain Elementary, Chief Financial Officer John Wolfe said that the school board has discussed the possibility of leasing a portion of A-15 to Brad Parker and perhaps doing a land swap with John Courtright, who owns property behind Chili Works on Trinity Drive.
Discussion on a possible land swap with Courtright and the possibility of leasing a portion of the DP Road property to Parker began last fall. At that time, the school board gave Wolfe direction to move forward with the negotiations.
