Los Alamos schools, county plan developmentJanuary 31st, 2012 at 2:22 pm by Bill Diven under Community Affairs
The Los Alamos council and board of education will meet Wednesday to decide on a new developer for a commercial project that would provide income for the schools.
The Trinity Site Revitalization Project stalled in 2009 as the economy tanked and the Los Alamos County Council ended negotiations with the previously selected developer.
Now the council has picked North American Development Group to lease and develop vacant land on Trinity Drive owned by the county and the Los Alamos Public Schools.
Proposed for the site are an anchor tenant–Smith’s Marketplace–and a mixture of retail and commercial operations.
The county’s goal is economic development and resulting jobs, while the school district will derive income from the land lease, according to the county’s website.
The lease is the only item on the agenda for the 6:30 p.m. meeting in the County Council Chambers.
