WR Complex opens Thursday

Los Alamos County Council Chair David Izraelevitz and White Rock Senior Center Coordinator Annie Bard cut the ribbon on the new White Rock Municipal Complex Thursday, a project that has been years in the making.
Accompanying them were Glenn Lockhart, member of the White Rock Master Implementation Committee; Project Manager Anthony Strain, Los Alamos Senior Services Director Pauline Schneider and County Councilor Chris Chandler.
The complex’s Senior Center now includes a kitchen for hot meals, as well as ADA compliant restrooms and more space for recreation and activities. The renovations cost about $3.96 million and was one of the last projects in the White Rock Master Plan.
“We are extremely excited to open up this beautiful expansion” Strain said.
The improvements to the center include, new interior floor plans and finishes, new utilities and mechanical/electrical equipment, new ADA restrooms, window and doors, improved grading and drainage, fresh landscaping, and a new commercial kitchen and 1,200 more square feet of new space.
The exterior has been refurbished with new tuck pointed masonry and fresh colors.
