A-19 Development Proposal Deadline Extended to Feb. 28



Los Alamos County has issued Addendum No. 2 extending the response date for the A-19-a Request For Proposals (RFP) to Feb. 28. The original RFP was issued Dec. 2, 2013 for the development of A-19-a project in White Rock.

Parcel A-19 was transferred from the DOE to the County for economic sustainability purposes in the fall of 2002. The land parcel is located on the north side of N.M. 4 (across from the Hampton Inn.) It is approximately 70 acres in size. Sixty acres lie on the west side of a drainage channel and 10 acres are located on the east side of the channel. Approximately four acres on the east side were developed for the new White Rock Fire Station No. 3 in 2007. The remaining six acres on the east side were reserved for future municipal uses and/or possible commercial uses.

Although the west side of A-19 is 60 acres in size, its estimated net developable acreage (remaining acreage once right-of-ways, parks, open space, roads, sidewalks, easements, setbacks and topographical limitations are accounted for) is approximately 42 acres.
