WR, Teen Center contracts OK’d

-A A +A

County > Projects have been scaled back from their original concepts

By Arin McKenna

The Los Alamos County Council unanimously approved two Capital Improvements Projects (CIP) contracts in a meeting Tuesday night.
One of the contracts provides $250,000 for remodeling the community building to serve as the Teen Center and the other provides $200,000 to the White Rock municipal complex remodel that will expand the Senior Center and multi-purpose community use space.
Although staff issued a combined Request for Proposals for both projects, they were addressed as individual projects that could be awarded separately. Each had separate interview teams with stakeholder representation.
NCA Architects, LLC, won both bids.
“It was just happenstance that the same firm came out as the highest scoring proposer on both projects,” said Community and Economic Development Director Anne Laurent.
Both projects were greatly scaled back from their original conceptual designs due to limited CIP funding.
The community building is actually the third proposed location for the teen center, following council’s rejection of a proposal for a new 18,000-square-foot facility costing $8,932,000 and a failure to reach an agreement on a lease at Central Park Square.
