I share the disappointment of most that the route to the full development of the Trinity Site remains uncertain. Some blame Boyer, some the county and council, but all of us need to look a little deeper.
There have been changes in Los Alamos over the past 15 years that have taken their toll. Better roads to Española and Santa Fe and inexpensive and regularly scheduled public transportation have made it faster and easier to shop outside Los Alamos.
Those improvements also have made it easier for Los Alamos National Laboratory employees to commute to Los Alamos. The county’s effort to bring in new high tech business has had only limited success in taking up the LANL slack.
It is surprising to many of us that the great things about Los Alamos including good schools, Bandelier, Valles Grande, our ski area, good hiking trails, safety and culture are not enough to attract more people to want to live here and invest in our community.
We are told that we are too small to attract Target, Whole Foods, Trader Joes, and others as their investment criteria stipulate a larger population.
