Staff Report

Los Alamos County’s formal Capital Improvements Program (CIP) is typically part of the County’s budget planning process that takes place every Spring, with final budgets adopted in May.

The County designs projects during the winter months and contracts for award of the projects each Spring. This means the late Spring and Summer months (typically late April until late October) are busy times for the construction crews and County staff.

Active Projects:

  • The Nature Center
