When the county council approved the Creative District Plan in April, Los Alamos MainStreet and the Los Alamos Commerce and Development Corporation (LACDC) were ready to get started.
The organization sought out developers who could help make the concept a reality and discovered PLACE, a nonprofit organization that specializes in developing “creative urban villages.”
“This is not just something coming out of the blue, someone saying, ‘Have I got something for you.’ This is a very specific strategy expressed in the Creative District Plan. This is something MainStreet sought out. We’ve done some due diligence,” said LACDC Executive Director Kevin Holsapple.
