The pedestrian lighting recently installed on Central Avenue is ridiculous. What would inspire a town of smart people to make such a foolish decision?
On-line I found minutes from a county meeting from October 2007 in which the pedestrian lights were mentioned. At the same meeting was a discussion of the town motto, “Where Discoveries are Made” and mention of the idea of “branding” Los Alamos.
I find it startling that The Atomic City does not recognize, much less celebrate, its brand. Los Alamos is known worldwide for one thing: the bomb. What else Los Alamos has discovered in the 60 years hence is probably a mystery to most, possibly because most of the work is “classified.”
In 2009 Los Alamos County celebrates its founding 60 years ago. It is a mid-century modern town, a “boomer.” All of its historic structures were built in the 20th century. The most significant facade on the section of Central Avenue where the lights appear is the Post Office. It is a lovely example of mid-century style.
