Project Update – June 2016

The Smith River Small Towns Business District Revitalization Project is moving right along!

On May 2, 2016, Henry County received the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) contract from the Department of Housing & Community Development.

Hill Studio (Roanoke, Virginia) has completed survey work in Bassett and Fieldale. The studio currently is in the process of reviewing preliminary conceptual designs and completing schematic designs needed to begin design development.

Property owners in the development area have received applications to participate in the façade improvement program.

Next, discussions will continue with property owners about development, and Hill Studio will begin to prepare façade work write-ups for property owners to review. Hill Studio also will continue design of both façade and streetscape improvements.

Check back for more updates as this project moves forward!
