Consultants hired by San Miguel County found out that most residents in the Valley want to keep things as they are.
“They would like to see a continuation of the existing land use,” said Mariana Padilla, a consultant with Parametrix, which has an office in Albuquerque.
Most of the land is now used for ranching and farming.
Padilla said the residents like the agricultural character of the Valley and believe that any development should be in the already developed areas.
