The Encinitas 101 MainStreet Association honored a departing longtime board member Oct. 7 as the organization installed its new Board of Directors during its annual meeting at The Lumberyard Tavern.

Bart Smith and Don Taylor stepped down from the board, Encinitas 101 said in an announcement. Taking their places are previous board member Bev Goodman, owner of Coast Hwy Traders, and new board member Jarrod Harms, owner of Detour Salon. Both were elected by the association’s members.

Smith, architect and owner of DZN Partners, received honors in recognition of his 20 years on the board, according to the announcement. Smith’s accomplishments include the preservation of the historic boathouses in downtown Encinitas and the facilitation of more than 50 facade grants.
