NLR police look to churches for help

NORTH LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) - It's been more than a year and a half since Ferguson, Miss., but its effects are still prompting police to reach out into the community and connect.

The North Little Rock Police Department has already started several initiatives like Shop with a Cop, and on Thursday they'll start another. 

Acceptance and trust don't spontaneously materialize. They're born from what's happening in Pastor Danny Jones' classroom at the Summit Church on Wednesday evening. It’s born from discussion.

The meeting will take place at the First Assembly of God Church.

The police department says it will be a relationship that will continue long into the future.







NLR reopens River Trail in time for 15k race

NORTH LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) - Runners were breathing a sigh of relief this week after North Little Rock reopened their side of the River Trail. 

The aftermath of the December moving into January flooding, that left debris, soot and sand covering the river trail path, has been preventing walkers, runners and bikers from enjoying one of the city's most popular outdoor spots. 

“Water covering the soccer fields,” Michelle Bruzatori described. North Little Rock Parks and Recreation crews took THV11's cameras along the trail to get a better look at the progress that has been made. Bruzatori continued, “I’m really excited to be able to run here again.”

Area around NLR High School being revamped

NORTH LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) - The area around North Little Rock High School is changing for the good. 

Danny Bradley, chief of staff for the mayor of North Little Rock, said this area is in great need of fresh air and is about to start seeing the first steps towards revitalization. 

"Developed back 60, 65 years ago, and it's began to age. It's time for a facelift," said Bradley. 

Bradley said several businesses and buildings near the intersection of Main Street and Pershing Boulevard are getting renovated to look like new. This is part of the ongoing expansion of the North Little Rock High School.

"The old Holiday Inn, which now you can see is now the Budgetel Inn in recent years, is being taken down.  It's going to be a large convenient store," Bradley explained.

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.
