Foundation funds Corral No. 5 purchase for veterans group


In record time, the nonprofit veterans assistance group Not Forgotten Outreach has completed the purchase of an iconic 28-acre Taos property thanks to a grant from the LOR Foundation.

NFO has been working for the past year on securing the Chet Mitchell Property, or "Corral No. 5" as it is called, across the street from Cid's Market on Paseo Del Pueblo Norte. The parcel will be preserved for agricultural use by NFO with less than two and a half acres used for small townhomes to house veterans.  NFO will be including several different amenities for the veterans and community they serve in the master plan for the land.

A ribbon-cutting ceremony is planned today (Jan. 17) at 2 p.m. at the Corral No. 5 pasture.
