Safety and environmental reasons motivated the Los Alamos County Recreation Division staff to seek funding for studies on improving and upgrading the Los Alamos Ice Rink.
Three proposed capital improvement projects address the rink’s parking lot, bathrooms and locker rooms, as well as installing a lift station.
Los Alamos Hockey Association is proposing another potential upgrade to the outdoor rink, an arena cover.
The Capital Improvement Project Evaluation and Oversight Committee have been reviewing these projects along with 12 others. The 16 applications will be scored and ranked during a public meeting Nov. 18 before being sent on to the Los Alamos County Council for final consideration. All of the project requests require funding for an initial study. The next phase of the application process is for design and construction funds.
Dianne Marquez, ice rink manager, said rink patrons parking along the north side of West Road and then crossing into traffic to get to the rink prompted staff to take action. “We are just really concerned there’s going to be a person/vehicle collision,” she said. “We just want to make sure people are safe.”
