Residents want work on JPJ Complex stopped

-A A +A

Some concerned residents voiced their opinions on the location of the skate park and circulated a petition in an effort to get council to reconsider the location.


Despite their efforts, the park was built in front of Mesa Public Library.


Now, another group of residents have presented the county with a petition opposing the Judicial/Police/Jail Complex.


Groundbreaking for the JPJ Complex was held in October and work on the property surrounding the proposed complex site began last month, however, the county did not receive the petition, signed by 20 Los Alamos residents, until Nov. 24.


The reasons given for the petition state the residents who signed it feel that the “current project is not best for the town and the citizens of Los Alamos because the current project is too large in size, too high in cost, and not ideal in location. However, the citizen group endorses a Judiciary Complex with a modest size and cost on an alternative location.”


The petition also states that those who signed it wish for work on the complex to be stopped. One of the signers is Min Park, owner of Central Avenue Grill.
