The Department of Energy transferred slightly more than eight acres of land located off Trinity Drive to Los Alamos County this year. The land formerly held the Los Alamos Site Office.
Previously, the county had acquired a four acre parcel from DOE at the same location, bringing the total to 12.9 acres. The question the county is facing is what should be done with the land?
To begin to answer that question, the county is hosting two public listening sessions –— the first one was held Wednesday in Los Alamos and the second will be held at 6 p.m. today at the White Rock Town Hall.
There was a small turnout to the Wednesday night meeting. About 10 people attended and five people stepped up to the podium. One person e-mailed comments to Gary Leikness, the project leader.
Stanley W. Hall said he had some concerns regarding any changes to traffic, particularly with Los Alamos Medical Center being located near the site.
Wally Vette, Los Alamos Medical Center CEO, said the hospital is interested about the traffic density of the area and how the property will be used. He also said this could be an opportunity to re-align and improve Trinity Drive.
“I see this as a diamond in the rough,” Vette said.
