Taos County Planning Department GIS and Mapping

Taos County Planning Department GIS and Mapping

The Taos County Board of Commissioners, County Manager, and the Taos County Planning Department are excited about being able to provide the public with the Interactive Maps and PDF (Read Only) Maps that we hope will assist with questions regarding addressing, floodplain and Taos County Maintained Roads.

This is a new and evolving service that Taos County desires to improve by providing additional Interactive and PDF Maps in the future.

Taos County Planning Department staff use GIS (Geographical Information Systems) for assisting with the management of rural addressing, floodplain management, neighborhood zoning, emergency management, county road inventory, and other planning related items.

On this page you will find links to maps produced by Planning Department Staff.  These maps include interactive maps like the Taos County Address Finder or pdf maps such as the Taos County Zoning maps which can be downloaded to your computer.

Taos County Floodplain Management

Mission Statement

Floodplain Management consists primarily of assessing flood risk for structures prior to construction.

State and Federal construction projects are subject to an extensive engineering review that includes hydrologic analysis and environmental impact. This also applies to large commercial projects.

Local construction that falls within a floodplain is regulated by local government  using FEMA and EPA standards. This protects watersheds, wetlands, and rivers from sedimentation, and chemical or biological pollution (EPA). And it prevents property losses to citizens that could be significant in the event of a flood (FEMA).
