The RAHB Board of Directors approved a change to the Smithville (SM 57) boundary to line up with the official urban boundaries for Smithville Township.
The previous Smithville boundary was set many years ago, prior to the recent residential development in the township. Some new developments are legally within Smithville Township but lay outside the long-standing RAHB boundaries and therefore had to be listed in GR55. Anyone searching for properties in Smithville might well have missed those listed in GR 55.
RAHB’s MLS® Committee consulted with members who are active in the area and with the Township of West Lincoln, and recommended that RAHB’s boundary should follow that of the Township. Now, members with listings in Smithville and those searching for listings in Smithville will be able to use the SM 57 area code and be confident the properties are located in the correct area.
The change in boundary is now in effect. All active and historical listings have been updated in Fusion and Matrix. RAHB’s Outlying Areas map will be updated at the next printing, and CoreLogic will update the boundary for the overlay on the map search prior to RAHB’s full cut over to Matrix.
