UPDATE on National Historic Landmark

Sharing a message received today....

     Good news!  This morning the Advisory Board of the National Park System
voted to recommend National Historic Landmark designation for the Poston
Elementary School, Unit 1 at the Colorado River Relocation Center (Poston)
site. This vote was a major benchmark in the NHL process. 
     The Board's recommendation will now go through the National Park Service Director to Secretary of the Interior Ken Salazar, who officially designates NHLs.
      It usually takes 2 to 6 months (more or less) until Secretary Salazar acts
on recommendations.
