Council Tables Withdrawal of Historic Sculptures Master Plan … Will Revisit In June Time Frame

The Los Alamos County Council voted 7-0 during today’s noon-time meeting to table the motion that Council withdraw the Historic Sculptures Master Plan as an official document that guides the work of County boards, commission and staff. Concern was expressed with how the County could fund the plan and other types of public art while ensuring the collection includes a wide variety spread throughout the community. Council likely will revisit the issue at a meeting in June. Photo by Carol A. Clark/

The plan is quite detailed and a major issue is specific mention of placing 17 statues downtown, which many community members spoke against during public comment last year. Photo by Carol A. Clark/

Chair Mark Rayburn of the Fuller Lodge/Historic Districts Advisory Board asked Council to not throw out completely the Historic Sculptures Master Plan as a lot of work went into creating it and some aspects of the plan have merit. Photo by Carol A. Clark/
