Road and Plaza Closures

By: Bill Whaley
7 May, 2018

Below Taos Friction publishes a list of events, road and Plaza closures, obtained from the “secret” files at Town Hall. Plan your spring, summer, fall. Pray for the Historic and much abused Plaza. BTW: Beautify Taos is looking for a psychotherapist who can meet with Mayor and staff in the interests of reconciling the interests of living things and living history. We know that every bone in the lumberjack’s body cries out for a chain saw or an electrical socket when he sees a tree. But, Mr. Mayor, there’s another way!
