NM MainStreet & Outdoor Recreation Division Partner on “Outdoor Recreation Asset Atlas” Pilot to Identify Outdoor Recreation Projects in MainStreet Districts


McKinley, Sierra, San Juan, Colfax, and Lincoln Counties Selected for Initial Study

Santa Fe, N.M. – The New Mexico Economic Development Department (NMEDD) announced the launch of an innovative New Mexico MainStreet (NMMS) and Outdoor Recreation Division (ORD) collaboration to connect communities’ downtowns with their natural resources. NMMS and ORD will create the “Outdoor Recreation Asset Atlas” to study five counties; the end result will identify up to five trail creation or improvement projects connected to MainStreet districts. Outdoor recreation development, when connected to MainStreet community downtowns, has great potential to support local, asset-based economic development.
