Controversy over proposed Burns Park hotel


NORTH LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) -- North Little Rock residents are upset over a new proposed hotel that plans to be built behind their homes.

The neighbors persuaded Mayor Joe Smith to pull the item from February's planning board meeting, but the city says it still plans on moving forward with the hotel.

"It's concerning because they're going to take away from our backyard," said resident Ashley Graham. "How many people can say I'll live in the city yet my kids get to look at the deer?"

Since she was born, Graham has lived on West Drive in North Little Rock and now 25 years later she feels like her neighborhood is on the city's chopping block.

"You're going to see concrete, you're going to see hotels, lodges, fast food whatever they want to put there," Graham continued.
