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.


Strong at Heart is a project of the Town of Taos focused on working with Taoseños to create
a vision for a thriving downtown for everyone.
 
The goal of the project is to create a Taos Downtown Strategy, which communicates our shared values,
guiding principles and vision for the downtown, and includes an action-plan to get things done.

Report on Phase 1: Public Input Summary

The next public meeting is scheduled for November 27.  Time and place TBA.
