NLR needs developers for Burns Park lodge


 

NORTH LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) -- In North Little Rock, the Parks and Recreation Commission is moving forward with their hopes to build a lodge near Burns Park.

The group is now asking if any developers would be interested in the project. It would include building a hotel similar to Mount Magazine or Petit Jean. 

"I personally think that a development like this would personally rejuvenate that area of the city,” said North Little Rock Mayor Joe Smith. He believes a lodge would help the park recruit tournaments.

Again, this is very preliminary. NLR Parks and Rec is only asking for proposals from developers.

Coyote sightings in NLR neighborhood


NORTH LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) -- A surprise visitor in one North Little Rock neighborhood is catching people off guard.

At least one coyote was spotted twice this week in the Park Hill neighborhood on Skyline Drive.

One viewer even captured a photo of it in her backyard in the middle of the day, eating birdseed.

Experts said while may seem odd to see, especially in broad daylight, coyote sightings in neighborhoods are not uncommon.

“Coyotes have a home range of about 10 miles. So you might see one coyote on one side of North Little Rock and then several weeks later that same coyote on a different side of the city,” said David Miles, Lead Animal Control Officer for the city of North Little Rock.
