New building site a good idea

-A A +A
By The Staff

Dear Editor,

The residents of Los Alamos County have a lot to consider with the proposed location for a new Municipal Building plus retail and community space at 15th and Trinity streets. The buildings’ conceptual designs and location are available on-line (www.losalamosnm.us), at the public library, and at the county annex building.

This project and the decision on the proposal are on a fast-track (decision no earlier than the Aug. 26 County Council meeting). I am on the board of the Los Alamos Co-operative Market (LACM); the Co-op has some 350 members and has been working toward opening a natural foods grocery in the county for several years.

The 15th and Trinity proposal includes the Co-op as a street-front anchor tenant with ample retail space, a great location for local and commuting traffic for grocery shopping and doing county business, and integration into a new community downtown extension without sprawl. The site would provide modern space for our county employees, a new restaurant on the canyon, create a plaza central to the buildings for public events, contribute toward a canyon rim public trail, have some great views utilizing the natural beauty of canyons and vistas, and much more.
