Tornado-torn town gets first look at recovery plan

SMITHVILLE — Smithville officials are looking at the first draft of what they are calling the road map to the future.

WTVA-TV in Tupelo reports the comprehensive plan had been in the words before the April 27, 2011, tornado devastated the northeast Mississippi town.

A grant from Appalachian Region Commission helped the town complete the rough draft of the plan along with a future land use map and a pedestrian friendly map, which includes walkways and sidewalks outlining growth over the next 20 years.

Mayor Gregg Kennedy says the board of aldermen and the planning commission are reviewing the plan.

Kennedy says a workshop will be scheduled sometime for later this summer where residents can view and discuss the comprehensive plan with town leaders.
