Los Alamos is an extraordinary community. Our quality of life is among the very best in the nation. A major component of that quality is our economic wealth, also at the top. Why are we so fortunate? Can future generations enjoy a similar, or better, life here?
Los Alamos is a unique combination of world-renowned science, small town atmosphere, and beautiful natural environment. That formula is not for everyone, but it works for most of us.
The root of our good fortune is the concentration of challenging, important, rewarding work at the laboratory. That work has attracted and retained legions of extraordinary workers and their similarly remarkable spouses and families. Such people tend to be multi-dimensional, pursuing avocations at a level and intensity similar to those applied to their professional work. Those attitudes and aptitudes pervade our community; they are in our genes and in our air. Our standards and expectations for teachers, store clerks, mechanics, and even politicians are correspondingly high. All these extraordinary people create the stimulating culture that is also key to our high quality of life.
