Hailey appoints new P&Z commissioner

Retired engineer Daniel Smith worked for J.R. Simplot Co.

Express Staff Writer

    Hailey resident and retired engineer Daniel R. Smith was appointed Monday to a three-year term on the Hailey Planning and Zoning Commission by Mayor Fritz Haemmerle.
    Smith, 60, will take the position left vacant by Geoffrey Moore. He was chosen from a field of five candidates after being interviewed by city staff.
    “I was honored to be chosen as a commissioner and it is a privilege to serve the community,” Smith said. He and his wife, Stephany, have owned a home in Hailey since 1985 and have lived there full time since 2007.
    Smith earned a bachelor of science degree in engineering and a master’s degree in business administration from Idaho State University in Pocatello. He worked for many years for J.R. Simplot Co. and has served on the boards of many civic organizations, including the Rotary Club and the city of Pocatello’s Historic Preservation Commission.
    “I want to retain and enhance the unique qualities we have in Hailey,” he said. “The historic areas add a unique dimension to the community. In my opinion we are the heart of the business community in the Wood River Valley.”
    Smith said he is looking forward to working with city staff and other commissioners to promote the city’s unique assets.
