The Parks Division, is entrusted with the
maintenance of Kit Carson Park, Fred Baca Park, Taos Plaza, La Loma Plaza, and
the landscaping around town buildings. The Parks Division also maintains the
trash cans at the following locations: Dunn Street parking lot, Our
Lady of Guadalupe parking lot, Kit Carson Road and Bent Street. We
are also responsible for the care and maintenance of the main public
restrooms in the downtown area.
Daily maintenance of the parks includes grass
cutting, tree trimming, litter patrol and the monitoring of events.
During the winter the division provides snow removal for all Town of Taos
facilities and any minor park improvements required.
The Division also heads up annual Town-wide 'trash drives', which in the past five years have netted the disposal of over 16 tons of trash. For this program, volunteers work with Parks Division Supervisor to fill dumpsters with trash collected from several points around Taos, with a major focus on public view corridors and open space.
This program is made possible through assistance from a grant received from the Governor’s Tourism Department. The financial resources received from the grant are used to purchase supplies and to bolster participation through volunteer organizations who receive contributions for the active participation of their member volunteers.
Ultimately the primary function of the Parks
Department is to maintain all of the Town of Taos parks and keep
them "Clean, Green and Safe".
