Downtown Master Plans (Los Alamos & White Rock) 


Los Alamos County issued an RFP for a consultant to spearhead the Downtown Master Plans for both Los Alamos townsite and White Rock, in conjunction with a Development Code Update. Consultant Dekker, Perich, Sabatini was ultimately selected and presented to Los Alamos County Council on July 7, 2020 for an initial overview and status. There will be extensive community engagement on these projects, and the County has created a separate website with information. Please refer to for full details on the project. 

Los Alamos MainStreet is also simultaneously working on a complementary, possible Metropolitan Redevelopment Area (MRA) zone for White Rock. A meeting with Los Alamos County Council is scheduled for Aug. 18, 2020 to offer a White Rock MRA overview.


July 7, 2020 

The project consultant, Dekker, Perich, Sabatini (DPS), provided a presentation on the status of the Downtown Master Plans and Development Code Update project. The presentation focused on initial existing conditions findings, site analysis, and the Chapter 16 Code diagnosis, as well as provided an opportunity for discussion and feedback on the project from the members of the County Council. The project schedule, public outreach plan, and next steps were also presented.
