Open Space Specialist Craig Martin has included all public comment he received on the proposed Open Space Plan in Friday’s Los Alamos County Council agenda packet, available at losalamos.legistar.com/Calendar.aspx. This is a sampling of some of those comments.
• “I was very hesitant to move here. I expected a barren desert marred by evidence of its atomic history. Instead I found a beautiful natural environment, accessible by foot from my front door. There are deer in my front yard, so many birds I have lost count, the stars at night are amazing (so amazing in fact that most nights there are so many stars that I can’t make out the big dipper). Everyone who has come to visit us here at Los Alamos is surprised and amazed at the amount of open space and natural beauty, all accessible by a short walk from my house. Please protect these open spaces. It truly makes Los Alamos a special and magical place.”
• “Having lived in Boulder I have seen firsthand the difference an Open Space policy can make over the long haul. Our desert basis offers little margin for error in this matter, especially if it just gets drier and hotter.”
