The Taos Land Trust, University of New Mexico’s Prevention Research Center, Strong at Heart, and members of the Taos community worked together to assess how safe and easy it is for people to get around Taos on foot. Walkable communities are healthier, safer, cleaner, and more economical. More than thirty people discussed their experiences walking in Taos, built awareness of particular problem areas, and generated ideas to make the downtown area more pedestrian friendly.
