We demand that the Board of Autry National Center make a firm and legally-binding commitment to take responsibility for the continued maintenance and operation of the Southwest Museum's Mt. Washington facilities, in perpetuity, as a condition of being allowed to develop new facilities on lands owned by the City of Los Angeles in Griffith Park virtually free of charge and in recognition of the enormous investment of public funds expended to construct the Gold Line's Southwest Museum station.

Further, the Autry National Center must commit to a thorough programmatic study to determine how the Casa de Adobe and Southwest Museum may continue to be operated in a manner consistent with its founders' vision, as a reflection of the cultural, historical and artistic heritage of the Southwest, of California and of the City of Los Angeles.

Having assumed possession of the Southwest Museum's assets and priceless collection, the Autry National Center must officially recognize its moral responsibility to maintain and revitalize the Museum's original Mt Washington home so that it will play as integral a role in the future cultural and economic development of Los Angeles' Northeast community as it has in its past.
