Los Alamos County Recreation Bond Election Website Updated With Latest Renderings And Costs


To provide voters information, Los Alamos County has updated the recreation bond website (losalamosbondprojects2017.com) with project information, project costs, a calculator to figure out homeowner’s property tax increase, and renderings of the proposed projects. 

Los Alamos County voters will have the opportunity to vote on the $20 million general obligation bond, to be repaid from property taxes for the purpose of designing, acquiring, constructing, purchasing and improving recreation facilities including 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.

Additionally, the bond package would provide for golf course and softball field improvements. If approved, the County will add an additional $13.4 million to the budget from general operating funds with the intention of building or improving five recreation projects.

Mail-in ballots will be mailed out May 2, 2017. They must be received in the Los Alamos County Clerk’s Office by close of business May 23, 2017.
