The Smithville Neighborhood and Housing Options Task Force, convened on Monday 27 July, 2020.
The discussion was a mixture of reviewing community aspirations, planning implications and future land use options. In particular, the task-force reviewed the proposed Character Areas and the types of housing most suited. The Northern area of Smithville is seen as an important family home area. The Downtown provides the option for more live / work options and active retirees. The newly defined 169 South Character Area was discussed, and task-force members offered strong support for the concept of higher density housing and mixed-use professional space.
