Sprawl Stopped By A Sacred Sanctuary

New Mexico sprawl from Albuquerque to Taos has been stopped in Chimayo. A church is part of the miracle.

The San Francisco Trust for Public Land is helping Chimayo buy up the land around a Spanish colonial church which has been called the Lourdes of America. Developers want the land which is along the Santa Cruz River and near the base of the Sangre de Cristo Mountains. Residents want to keep the pastoral environment untouched by commercial and residential developments.
