Residents, business owners and representatives interested in Los Alamos County’s recently adopted arts and culture district (aka Creative District) are invited to apply to join the Creative District Advisory Committee forming this month.  Letters of interest are due to the county by 5 p.m. Oct. 16. 
 The county administrator is seeking citizen volunteers to join representatives of cultural and business assets operating within the adopted boundary of the Creative District to provide guidance and advice to council and staff regarding the county’s role in the implementation of the Creative District Master Plan — a plan designed for the purpose of achieving economic revitalization of downtown Los Alamos through the preservation, support and promotion of the community’s arts, culture and science and technology assets and attractions.
 Committee member selection will be based on the following criteria:
• Have a high interest in the county’s arts and culture organizations, businesses and attractions;
• Represent a wide range of interests and activities (residents or commercial/business owners);
• Have actively served with local community groups or organizations;
• Have a fair working knowledge of local government and its services; and
• Live in either Los Alamos or White Rock.
 A one-page letter of interest that addresses the selection criteria should be sent to the county.
Interested applicants may be contacted with further questions about background or interest in the team and are asked to include a phone number, email address and where they can be reached during business hours.
Letters should be addressed to Kelly Stewart, Marketing Specialist, Los Alamos County Community and Economic Development Department via email at kelly.stewart@lacnm.us or mailed to 133 Central Park Square, Los Alamos, N.M. 87544. Individuals can also mail or hand deliver their letter to the county’s Community and Economic Development Department located at the TRK Building at 195 East Road, Suite 104.
