New Smithville Retail Center Announcement!

June 2017

Plans for the long-awaited Smithville Commons developments call for a grocery, farm equipment dealer and more.

A long-awaited, major development is now under way in Smithville. The city’s Development Department has announced that the City has received applications for the redevelopment of the Smithville Commons Tax Increment Financing Project. The project is located on Highway 169 at Highway 92.

After several years of discussions and negotiations, a new developer has submitted two applications – one is a conceptual development plan that will amend the zoning on the property. The other is to completely overhaul the existing TIF plan to allow for this updated development plan.

The project consists of seven pad sites with 120,000 square feet of retail space on 18.9 acres at the Smithville Commons site. It also includes up to 15.9 acres of future development areas.

A new, 70,000-squar-foot Price Chopper Store, and a 15,000-square-foot implement dealership will anchor the project. It also includes a 12,000-square-foot hardware store, along with four additional building pads for restaurant/retail.

This application begins the process of re-imagining retail development in Smithville. This is the first step in the approval process, which will include meetings and hearings before the TIF Commission, the Planning and Zoning Commission and the Board of Aldermen. Please stay tuned for more on this exciting possibility!
