Encinitas 101 Installs New Board, Honors 20-Year Veteran
On Tuesday evening, October 7, the Encinitas 101 MainStreet Association held its Annual Meeting and Installation Dinner at The Lumberyard Tavern. The nonprofit group, created to preserve, improve and promote Downtown Encinitas, thanked its current board, honored two departing members, and welcomed two new members.
Stepping down from the board were directors Bart Smith and Don Taylor. Smith, architect and owner of DZN partners, received several honors in recognition for his 20 years on the board. He was named the first inductee into the “Encinitas 101 Hall of Fame” thanks to his two decades of generous service and his substantial contributions to the association and to the downtown district. Smith’s accomplishments include the preservation of the historic boathouses and the facilitation of over 50 façade grants. County Supervisor Dave Roberts issued a proclamation in Smith’s honor and announced the County’s decision to name October 7 “Bart Smith Day.” City of Encinitas Councilwoman and former Mayor Teresa Barth lauded Smith for his civic service and presented him with a certificate of recognition.
