"Basically, what we found through the years is that tourism, if not reassessed, you have problems with over-tourism or not really listening to the community. This is a way of kind of a shifting the mindset to really understand what the community wants, and addressing those issues in a long-term plan." This quote from the above article sums it up. Taos is growing and it's gotta find the balance.
