Maggie Smith is Albion director of development and housing

Maggie Smith
Maggie Smith has been an Albion resident for only a few months, but she’s already enthused about the community’s economic development potential.
She started a new job Sept. 12 as the city’s economic development and housing program director.
“Albion already has some great things going, and I’m excited to continue that progress in housing and other areas,” she said. “I’m looking forward to meeting everyone. When you give attention to people and their ideas, really amazing things can happen.”
She said her philosophy is: ”Love where you live,” and she plans to be very active in her role.
Maggie has an office in the building at 127 South Fourth Street that was recently purchased by AEDC. She plans to be available there from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday, but she will be out of the office from time to time conducting research.
