Los Alamos and White Rock were busy towns when I first arrived in 1968. However, since my 1986 LAHS graduation, I’ve witnessed a steady loss of retail, and a deterioration of infrastructure and public buildings.
Throughout the years, I proudly assumed the Municipal Building to be a permanent landmark, like Fuller Lodge, that would be preserved. The senior class photo in front of the Municipal Building was an unquestioned tradition and, like many others, I received photo calendars featuring the historical structure in its frame of blue sky and mountains when I went to college.
County councilors and administrators swore in 2006 that the cost of fixing the structural problems of our Municipal Building would be substantially more than tearing the building down and starting again. I listened as they told knowledgeable citizens we did not understand the complex issues and had no right to comment on the cost of the structural renovation.
