NLR mosquito patrol begins tonight


NORTH LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) – Warm weather is here, and so are the mosquitoes!

Mosquito control will begin making its rounds though the city of North Little Rock on Monday night.

The sprayers will run Monday through Thursday from 7 p.m. until 11 p.m. each evening through the end of October.

As for safety precautions, the city uses only EPA approved green chemicals which are certified by the Arkansas State Plant Board, and around schools and daycares, they use coconut oil.

North Little Rock's Director of Communications, Nathan Hamilton, says they want to keep everyone comfortable and safe.

Public input brings changes to NLR parks


NORTH LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) – Changes are coming to North Little Rock's Burns Park, and local leaders want the public's input.

The North Little Rock Parks and Recreation Commission met on Monday night to hear from residents about what they want from the parks department.

Crestview Park even stemmed from an idea that came from a North Little Rock Parks and Recreation Commission meeting, so officials are hopeful.

The most recent idea is a completely handicap accessible playground.

"Most of our parks are handicap accessible by ADA standards in that they have a wood fabric carpet, but this is a special. This one is totally 100 percent accessible…" said Bob Rhoads, director of NLR Parks and Recreation.

Farm & Food Innovation Center board dissolves organization; shifts programming


NORTH LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (April 20, 2015) – After a year of service to Arkansas communities, the Farm & Food Innovation Center (FFIC) board has chosen to dissolve the organization. It will shift its successful programming to partner organizations to sustain the focus and growth of each initiative.

Much like a variety of different crops might not grow as well in the same field, FFIC felt that the programs and services they have helped nurture would be more successful on their own rather than under a single umbrella. Allowing these programs to develop as separate focus areas will prove more sustainable both for the accomplishment of FFIC's original mission, and for the local food system in Central Arkansas as a whole.
