What is the team doing?
The Community Housing Team of Smyrna was born out of the Smyrna Vision Plan and its formation was supported by the Smyrna Mayor, City Council, and city staff.
The team consists of residents, elected officials, and city staff, including stakeholder representatives from county and state agencies and organizations. Team members range from the nonprofit to the private sector.
Team members have personal interest in the well being of the community and the majority work directly on issues of housing. By bringing together a group of diverse perspectives and experience, the City hopes to develop well-thought out possible solutions and strategies to address community housing challenges.
The team was originally formed with the intention of participating in a program created by the Department of Community Affairs. The city was not selected but chose to preserve the team and continue the conversation because it is important to Smyrna’s future.
The first meeting of the team was held on November 7th, 2017. The team will continue to meet on a monthly basis.
