Master Plan
Rio Tesuque Community Plan

Tesuque , New Mexico

The village of Tesuque was the first community in Santa Fe County to have its own land use plan approved by the Board of County Commissioners. This four-year effort was achieved by working closely with the Tesuque Land Trust, the citizens of the Traditional Historic Community of Tesuque and the County Planning staff.

Funding was provided by an innovative grant from the National Endowment for the Arts, several local foundations and private donations.

The Tesuque community consists of about 1,500
persons and is set in a clearly defined, five square mile area along the Rio Tesuque. The river valley at the base of the foothills of the Sangre de Cristo mountains gives Tesuque its unique bio regional characteristics. In creating the locally based land use plan, a strong alliance was formed with Las Tres Villas, a neighborhood association including Tesuque and the adjoining valley communities, Chupadero and Rio en Medio.
