After relocating to Northern NM from Gallup 5 years ago, Lindsay Mapes immersed herself in the Questa, NM scene a few years ago. She became the Economic Development Fund’s Director and set to assisting with the transition of the economy from a mining town towards one that embraces tourism. Having personally experienced the housing crunch in Taos and in Questa, she realized an opportunity for economic development utilizing Questa’s abandoned homes, both for tourism needs and for locals needing affordable rentals. The Questa Lodging Project was born and is an ambitious and creative approach to both economic development and housing that has the potential to reach dozens of tourism-based communities throughout the west. Join TEN this Tuesday to learn more about what’s shaking in Questa, opportunities for entrepreneurs, and how Questa is becoming the bedroom community of the Enchanted Circle.
