Petition to stop JPJ Complex construction shot down

-A A +A
By Jennifer Garcia

Despite an effort by some local residents to stop construction of the Judicial/Police/Jail Complex, the show will go on.


County Councilors voted 5-1 in favor of proceeding with construction of the complex. The only one who voted against it was Council Vice Chairman Robert Gibson.


Local business owner Min Park and a handful of residents voiced their opinions Tuesday night on the JPJ Complex. Park, who spearheaded the petition that was presented to the county on Nov. 24, apologized to council for bringing this issue to them so late in the process.


He said that he and some other Los Alamos residents felt that the complex is too large in size, too high in cost and not ideal in location. However, he also stated that the citizen group endorses a judiciary complex in a modest size and cost on an alternative location.


Though Park did not offer suggestions for an alternative site, he hinted that the county might consider Parcel A9 on DP Road or the LASO site.
