Alley Cantina
Pueblo de los Suenos
The Alley Cantina, near Historic Taos Plaza, contains the oldest existing structure in Taos.
Pueblo de los Suenos, on Kit Carson Road, is a more recent addition to Taos' architectural scene.

What is needed now is strong political support, by the mayor and town council,
by the county manager and board of supervisors, to break out of the too oft-repeated cycle of developing documents
that serve their primary role, as Matt Spriggs, former director of planning for the town put it, as another set of doorstops.

We have established this web site to keep the community informed about planning activities here in the Taos Valley,
and to provide a way for residents, and other interested folks, to comment on those plans. 

Additional information may be found at both the Town and County planning departments.

Wednesday (Dec. 13) from noon to 2 p.m. at the Carson National Forest Supervisor’s Office, 208 Cruz Alta Road, Taos.
