Skate Park hits legal snag with appeal

-A A +A
By Jennifer Garcia

The skate park and its proposed location site near Mesa Public Library have been topics of interest for many Los Alamos residents in recent months. While it seems that Los Alamos youth want the skate park downtown, some residents like Jack and Colleen Hanlon would like to see it located somewhere other than the library site.

In an effort to get County Council to reconsider the location, the Hanlons filed a Notice of Administrative Appeals in First Judicial District Court on Aug. 8.

According to court documents, the appeal was filed pursuant to Rule 1-074 NMRA and Section 39-3-1.1, NMSA 1978 to set aside the decision of the County Council in which the county affirmed the decision of the Planning and Zoning Committee approving a site plan for a proposed skate park.

A letter addressed from the Hanlons’ attorney, Frank T. Herdman of the Rubin Katz Law Firm in Santa Fe, to Dan A. Gonzales, Esq., assistant county attorney, notified the county of the court action.
