SRST-123In 2013, the Harvest Foundation convened the Smith River Small Towns Collaborative to bring community leaders together to develop a shared vision for these communities.

The Collaborative developed an asset map for the area which created 15 Magical Miles, a listing of annual events, heritage sites, recreation areas, and destinations for dining, shopping and lodging. The group identified priorities for revitalization, curb appeal and needed amenities.
