Smoketown Feedback

Starting a Smoketown Community Fund

Thanks to recommendations from people in Smoketown and a community-based committee, the two-acres of land at the corner of Preston and Finzer streets will be sold in early 2022. The income from the sale will create the Smoketown Community Fund at the Community Foundation. People who live, work, worship and serve in your community will decide how to use the money to support Smoketown.

Tell us what should NOT be built on the land. Your help is needed to protect the land from being turned into something that does not help Smoketown. Through deed restrictions, we can reduce the chances of development that does not fit or benefit your community.

Join us!

Hear & ask questions about the 2-acres at Preston & Finzer Streets being used to bring something special to Smoketown and start a Smoketown Community Fund.
