Town residents to weigh in on Taos park name

TAOS, N.M. (KRQE) – The Taos Town Council wants to hear from residents before it makes a final decision on the controversial renaming of Kit Carson Park.

According to the Albuquerque Journal, the name change is being put on the Taos Town Council agenda for July 8 to allow more residents to weigh in.

Earlier this month, the council passed a resolution for the new name Red Willow Park.

Many people are against the park’s current name because of the way Carson treated Native Americans.
