The New Mexico Environment Department and the New Mexico Community Foundation will host a series of listening sessions about Los Alamos National Laboratory.
The sessions are designed to better understand the issues and perceptions residents of northern New Mexico have regarding LANL.
The conveners anticipate the conversations will touch on economic, social, political, cultural, environmental and other issues that surround the lab.
Officials with the Environment Department said better understanding of these issues and priorities that are important to northern New Mexicans will allow the Department to incorporate these concerns into its decisions on handling potential environmental risks posed by LANL.
The first session will be July 22 at the Genoveva Chavez Community Center at 3221 Rodeo Road in Santa Fe from 5:30 to 7 p.m. Other sessions will be announced at that meeting.
