|Urban Planning, Los Alamos Style?|
There is still strong pressure to make Trinity Drive, right out to the Airport, four or five fast lanes, thus increasing speeding. Turning roads into speedways is often euphemistically referred to as an "improvement." There is also a strong drive to build a shopping mall on Trinity Place, across the street from Mari-Mac, and potentially across a four or five lane "improved" street built to increase capacity but will undoubtedly encourage speeding. Funny how the County can with one raised hand pass ordinances to promote a compact, liveable community and actually look like it might build just the opposite, thus spreading out the county in a design that almost requires one to drive to the store. As former Councillor Gibson has sometimes grouched, this county needs to engage in comprehensive planning rather than piecemeal planning.
There is little time left to register your two cents. I suggest doing so sooner rather than later. Send your carefully worded cards and letters to: CountyCouncil@lacnm.us
