Some people, 1,679 to be exact, are claiming that the old Municipal Building was so sentimental to them that it stood for Los Alamos. They signed a petition that states “the original Los Alamos County Municipal Building dedicated June 24, 1967 shall be fully rebuilt and restored to its original site and design...” End of quote.
But the heart of Los Alamos is not in the old Municipal Building, it’s in the spirit of its people. The people who stayed on to continue research after the Manhattan Project did it because they knew there were more discoveries to be made and they believed in progress. That same spirit exists today.
Let’s build an energy efficient, beautiful municipal complex on Central Avenue as the site selection committee of our residents recommended and the county council affirmed. This is a location that can benefit the other half of the downtown area. Perhaps new retail and eateries will follow in the site across the street. Save the grassy area of Ashley Pond where the former municipal building had been for picnics, weddings, concerts, movies, Shakespeare in the Park and just a place to sit and enjoy our wonderful mountain setting.
