Letter to the Editor: Sharing Necessary Information

Los Alamos

For the public and for Historical Society members specifically, I have received some valuable feedback from my previous letter (see letter here) that contained the suggestion that Certified Preservationists were not being consulted.

A lack of trust among people in the same genre of interests, such as the history of the area can be remedied by the equal sharing of information so that those who donate funds, and those who advise the County Council are aware of their shared concerns. When trusted people begin to complain on the basis of withheld (not intending secretive purposes) information, there are often conclusions drawn upon what they are seeing.

In terms of Fuller Lodge and future needs in the decision making, the county is consulting with Karen Van Citters who received a degree in Architecture, but most interesting to us, has a Masters in Preservation from Columbia
University. She has already done some work with other communities in NM and has 25+ years in National Registry of Historic Place properties. She is the Architect of the Southwest Regional Office of the National Park Service. 

I have been assured by the liason of the FL/HDAB, Wayne Kohlrust, that a relationship of trust be built upon sharing records with the Hisorical Society as is appropriate. This will increase some of the information that is received for the Historical Archives so that researchers, key members, and those who come to find out how our system works will be able to easily find good information.

I appreciate very much the clarification and agreement that we have had in the past. Wayne Kohlrust has been the liason to the FL/HDAB for many years.
