A five-hour public hearing drew out emotions from people both for and against the project, which would have brought a 21-tent 'glampground' to the northern side of County Road 110, just past the Taos Country Club.

The Taos County Planning Commission met Monday morning (May 3) for a lengthy and heated hearing about a special use permit (SUP) for the proposed 'Desert Flower Camping Resort,' a 24-tent 'glamping'-style campground located off County Road 110, about 1.5 miles west of the Taos Country Club. After nearly four hours of deliberation and public comments, the commission voted 3-2 to approve the application.
The public hearing started with a presentation from Alex Abeyta, agent and engineer for the applicants, Jody and Xochitl Wodrich. Abeyta painted a picture of the glamping tent village, describing two phases of construction, each bringing 12 tents to the 4.99-acre lot, with the goal of bringing an upper-scale camping experience to Taos.
