Earlier this month, Harold Smethills, one of the founding visionaries behind the Sterling Ranch community, was invited to speak at the “Next Generation Water Summit” in Santa Fe. The second annual event focused on water conservation and water reuse in the arid Southwest. The summit brought together a cross-section of hundreds of builders, designers, architects and water professionals to share best practices and brainstorm new ones through charrettes.
Smethills’ presentation, titled Water Challenges of Big Developments, was given at the Santa Fe Community Convention Center. His presentation focused on educating the audience on the advance work and research that went into the Sterling Ranch community’s game changing Sustainable Water Plan, to reduce the learning curve of others working across the region.
Diane Smethills, one of the leading partners in the development of the new Sterling Ranch community in southwest Denver, was honored today by the Highlands Ranch Chamber of Commerce at their “Women Who Soar” event.
Smethills, one of three women honored at the event sponsored by the Northwest Douglas County Economic Development Corporation, received the recognition in front of Federal, State, and County officials. The selected women were recognized for their ability to “inspire us to be better leaders and are blazing the path for future generations. They have made a difference to us in our community and have positively impacted the lives of others,” according to an announcement.
