White Rock plan takes shape

-A A +A
By Katy Korkos

White Rock residents gathered Wednesday for the fourth Community Forum on a redevelopment plan for White Rock’s commercial core. The plan is funded by the Los Alamos County Council, which has also promised to fund projects to draw more private investment to the suburb where one-third of county residents live.The turnout in White Rock Town Hall was somewhat smaller than the previous three meetings, which saw as many as 80 residents in the White Rock Fire Station. The substance of the plan was generated at those previous meetings, but consultants Moore Iacofano Goitsman (MIG) are still collecting both input and feedback from residents.“We’re in the home stretch with this plan,” Chris Beynon of MIG said in his introduction. “This plan continues to reflect your desires as a community.”Two community charrettes held in December resulted in a consensus to create a center of gravity for development at the corner of Sherwood Boulevard and N.M. 4, with a safe intersection that would lead to new construction on the A-19 parcel.“We looked at projects that might energize or catalyze development,” said Dan Guimond, the principal of Economic and Planning Systems (EPS).Guimond has worked in the county previously, preparing the initial market study for development of the A-19 parcels in addition to other projects.
