Owner/Broker Zia Realty Group

I would like to address some misunderstandings regarding a couple of lots addressed in the new Comprehensive Plan that have been a topic of conversation lately. 

The lots in question are two of three lots directly across from the Los Alamos County Airport. All three lots are currently zoned as “INDUSTRIAL USE”. The County Council chose to designate the two lots along the road as “Mixed Use” with the third lot along the canyon that includes the Canyon Rim Trail being designated as “Open Space”.

Letter To The Editor: Call For Council To Withdraw Open Space To Mixed Use Amendment Before Adopting Comprehensive Plan

on December 6, 2016 - 8:17am
By BARBARA CALEF And LYNN JONES
Los Alamos

To the Los Alamos County Council:

We object to the Council’s amendment of the Comprehensive Plan changing the parcels south of the airport and #502 from open space to multi-use after numerous meetings during which the public saw them marked as open space.

The fact that the members of the Planning and Zoning Commission could see no better designation than open space for the parcels south of the airport and #502 should give pause to the Council.
