Los Alamos County voters will have the opportunity to vote on a $20 million recreation bond package with a mail-in ballot this May. If the bond vote passes, the Los Alamos County Council voted at its Dec. 20 regular meeting to supplement the bond with an additional $13.4 million in County funds to build a multi-generational pool, splash pad and a recreation center with a multipurpose activity center that houses two gymnasium spaces, a running track and indoor ice arena, as well as golf course and softball field improvements.
The next step in the process is for the Council to vote on the election resolution at it Feb. 14 regularly scheduled Council meeting at 6 p.m. in Council Chambers. If the election resolution passes Feb. 14, this is the question that would be sent to voters on the ballot: “Shall the Incorporated County of Los Alamos issue up to $20 million of general obligation bonds, to be repaid from property taxes, for the purpose of designing, acquiring, constructing, purchasing, and improving recreation facilities, buildings and additions thereto?”
The Dekker Perich Sabatini (DPS) team is updating the Los Alamos Bond Projects website with the latest renderings and information. The updates will be live by the Feb. 14 Council meeting.
