Project History

State Road 4 and Rover Boulevard is owned by Los Alamos County. Ownership of the property was previously held by the US Department of Energy (DOE). The tracts of land (JA and J) were included in a bulk parcel of land that was transferred from the DOE to Los Alamos County in the fall of 2002. 

Tract JA was previously developed with a fire station. The fire station was demolished in 2007 and the parcel has since remained vacant. Both tracts were paved with asphalt in about 2007. The subject sites were most recently used as a ‘park-and-ride’ lot for visitors to Bandelier National Monument, this use has since ceased. 

Tract JA and Tract J were recently re-zoned to a Downtown district: Neighborhood Center Overlay zone (DT-NCO District). The neighborhood center overlay zone in the downtown district is a mixed-use zone combining residential, office, commercial, civic and other uses at a higher density. The DT-NCO District allowed uses can be found in the Los Alamos County Municipal Code in Section 16-285 (Use Index). The DT-NCO Information can also be found here.

Tract J recently went through a summary lot split and is now Tract J-1 and J-2. Tract J-1 will be retained by the County of Los Alamos for future infrastructure needs. Tract J-2 contains 1.2218 acres of land and is part of the Request for Proposal Offering along with Tract JA which contains .8545 acres of land. Because the history of the two lots are somewhat confusing, be advised, the only two lots being offered in this project are Tract J-2 and Tract JA.
