Four of six planning and zoning commissioners ultimately concurred Wednesday that the site plan for a proposed skate park in downtown Los Alamos meets the criteria set forth in the county’s development code. Getting to that vote has been a roller-coaster ride laced with lingering questions.
At the start of Wednesday’s meeting, which ran from 5:30-11:30 p.m. in Council Chambers, Chair David Izraelevitz asked each commissioner to declare any situations that may impact their vote.
Commissioner Ann Wadstrom, who attended the entire meeting via telephone, said, “I was approached about four weeks ago to recuse myself from this meeting.”
The approacher, whom Wadstrom declined to identify, proceeded to badger her for an hour-and-a-half, which Wadstrom called a “form of harassment.”
The unknown culprit finally “confessed” that someone else had put him or her up to the shenanigans.
“This did not go through regular channels,” Wadstrom said.
Wadstrom did disclose that while she is in favor of a skate park, she spoke as a “private citizen” against the library location during a previous council meeting, not knowing the project would eventually come before the commission.
Wadstrom told commissioners she did not believe that was a conflict of interest.
