  • State Legislature gets underway at the Round House

    Gov. Susana Martinez says her administration is trying to do a better job of reaching out to Democrats and Republicans in the Legislature this year.

    The Democratic-controlled Legislature returned to work at noon today for a 30-day session.

    Martinez delivered her “state of the state” address and two of the people she cited were former Los Alamos fire chief Doug Tucker and present police chief Wayne Torpy for their work during the Las Conchas Fire.

    Now the project, located at 2201 Trinity Drive across from Ashley Pond, is on the verge of becoming a reality. Developers expect to break ground this spring, and have phase I ready for occupancy a year later.

    The 60,000 square foot structure will have retail space on the ground floor, two floors of office space and 14 luxury penthouses on the top floor. Two other buildings will follow the same floor plan.
