In the past week, reading both a cover story in the Los Alamos Monitor, and the Trinity INsite pamphlet I received in the mail, I am compelled to let my voice be heard and hope you will do the same.
I want to acknowledge the work of the Trinity Site Revitalization Committee, some of whose citizen members have been active in the project for six years, and also the associated county staff. They have volunteered with the objective of improving our community and I salute their efforts.
However, a few key factors at this time sway my decision that this is no longer a good deal for our community. With Smith’s Marketplace as the ‘big box’ in Trinity Site and also the owner of the MeriMac Center across the street, we would have two shopping plazas at the east end of town controlled by Smith’s, and it is unclear how that immediately diversifies our retail.
I understand that the Los Alamos Schools need revenue, and that they planned to get lease revenue from this land; however in this option revenue is likely at least a year away, and I do believe we could compensate the schools if Trinity Site does not go forward.
