Our region is about to undergo massive changes with an estimated 80,00 people moving into the Twin Creeks development to our south and a new or redesigned airport to our west. The Board must create a strategic plan to decide on infrastructure investments and where focus our economic development efforts.
Smithville's population has grown 365% in the past 25 years. The Board must ensure we manage every resource effectively and efficiently so we are responsive to the needs of our citizens.
While economic development is booming to our south, Smithville's economic development can be best described as missed opportunities.
Smithville was just named #2 on the "Coolest Little Towns You've Probably Never Heard of." With amenities like Smithville Lake, great restaurants, amazing schools, affordable living and our proximity to Kansas City, we are no longer a well kept secret.
