Los Alamos County is seeking community input through an online survey available until July 11, 2024, to help shape the East Downtown Los Alamos Metropolitan Redevelopment Area (MRA) Plan. Residents can also watch the recording of the town hall meeting held on June 27, 2024, at Fuller Lodge to learn more about the project and its next steps at lacnm.com/EDLAMRATownHall

The MRA Plan aims to address issues such as vacant properties, low commercial activity, and deteriorating infrastructure. It will identify community-supported projects, programs, and policies to revitalize the designated area in downtown Los Alamos. The plan adheres to the New Mexico Metropolitan Redevelopment Code, which enables cities and counties to overcome development barriers through public-private partnerships. 

Initial assessments in May and December 2023 documented the area's conditions, confirming its eligibility for MRA designation. Since late 2018, Los Alamos MainStreet has engaged with local businesses and property owners regarding the MRA zone's benefits. At the request of the County and Los Alamos MainStreet and Groundwork Studio are assisting in the designation and planning process. The proposed East Downtown Los Alamos MRA boundary was adopted by resolution at the County Council meeting on May 7, 2024. 

Residents are encouraged to participate in the survey online at lacnm.com/EDLAMRASurvey. For more information, contact Paul Andrus at paul.andrus@lacnm.us, or Sobia Sayeda at sobia.sayeda@lacnm.us.
