Corrales Main Street Needs your Help!
Corrales Main Street is beginning its annual partnership drive and will soon begin its new fiscal year. We’re hoping you will join us when we ring it in. Your MainStreet organization has been instrumental in bringing businesses into Corrales that fit in with the makeup of the Village while generating necessary gross receipts taxes. Working with other organizations, it is positioning Corrales to become an Arts and Cultural district within the state, highlighting the wealth of artistic talent that calls Corrales home as well as our unique cultural and heritage sites.
As with any non-profit, volunteers are the backbone of the organization. That’s where you come in. We are looking for volunteers to work on committees and to serve on the Board of Directors.
We have several committees in place that can always use more volunteers:
Corrales MainStreet Board
Jim Kruger, President-ED Chair
Linda Parker, Treasurer
Valerie Burkett, Director – Organization Chair
James Covell, Director
Sue Evatt – Director – ACD Coordinating Council Chair
Lynn Martinez – Director
Joel Gregory – Director
John Perea – Director
Angela Gutierrez – Director
Kim Stewart – Director
Sandy Rasmussen, Executive Director
You can elect to serve on any of these committees or serve on the board.
- The Design Committee is currently working on making the first phase of the Pathways project a reality. They also interface between businesses in the Main Street corridor and the state Main Street organization to help with façade improvement.
- The Promotion Committee plans promotional material across media types designed to bring visitors into the village to eat at our restaurants, shop our stores and stay at our B&B’s. They also coordinate the production and distribution of In Focus.
- The Economic Development Committee tackles tasks related to the Economic Growth of the Village. Tasks such as LEDA (Local Economic Development Act) and the Doing Business in Corrales website are a result of this committee.
- The Organization Committee is responsible for building the partnership base, heads up the board nominating committee and produces the annual meeting.
The Corrales Main Street Board meets once a month on Thursday evenings for approximately ninety minutes. Serving on the Board of Directors gives you a chance to add your input to the operation of the non-profit and the direction we take within the village. Board members serve for a maximum of three years after which they may, if they desire, serve for another three-year term. Won’t you come join us?
If you would like more information or wish to volunteer, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with Volunteer in the subject line. We look forward to hearing from you!

Businesses – Non-Profits – Residents – Corporate Sponsors
The view of the Sandia Mountains at sunset, the sight of a newborn foal grazing in a roadside pasture, a relaxing Sunday morning strolling along the bosque, the wave of a long-time neighbor as you drive down Corrales Road, the smell of fresh earth after a monsoon-season rain, the rustle of Cottonwood and the flight of its seed, the daily reminder to “drive slow and see our village [or] drive fast and see our judge” these are just a few of the many things that make Corrales the precious jewel that it is. Another is you and your business.
Whether you operate a business along the Village corridor or do business out of your home, your success as a Corrales Business is one of the most important facets of preserving the character of our community through economic health.
Or maybe you don’t own a business in Corrales, but you as an individual are concerned about our community and desire to join Corrales MainStreet in our mission:
to develop and manage a community-based program to encourage the preservation of the Village of Corrales, its traditions, way of life, history, and agricultural roots by encouraging the enhancement and diversification of the economy of the Village.
