Trinity site not good for county

-A A +A
By Vincent Chiravalle

Dear Editor,

I would like to see a cooperative market in Los Alamos and I believe that such a business would be successful, but a partnership with the county is not necessary in order to make it happen. As part of their proposal, the cooperative market developers would like us to pay for an underground parking structure at the Trinity and 15th site in addition to the cost of the new municipal building itself.

The developers propose an elaborate municipal building at more than 44,000 square feet, which is much larger than what is needed to accommodate our staff, especially since the judicial area has been removed from it. The old municipal building was 21,000 square feet and this space served the needs of our community quite well for many years, including judicial functions.

I have not heard a valid reason why the developers couldn’t build the cooperative market on their own, and I would like to see them do so because a new commercial building with a restaurant and market would greatly improve the appearance of the Trinity and 15th area and generate more economic activity there. The county will receive GRT revenue from the commercial building regardless of whether it is next to the new municipal building or not.
