New program showcases the state’s large-acre sites to prospective companies

New program showcases the state’s large-acre sites to prospective companies

LITTLE ROCK, Arkansas (AEDC) The Arkansas Economic Development Commission (AEDC) joined Governor Mike Beebe today to announce a new initiative to better position Arkansas to strategically compete for projects requiring large acreage. Those locations worthy of the “Advance Arkansas Sites” distinction must be ready for rapid industrial development and meet AEDC’s highest standards of quality.

Two large-acreage sites, the Little Rock Metro Mega Site and West Memphis Mega Site, are already featured on www.AdvanceArkansasSites.com. Each location lists property information, demographics and workforce information to educate prospective businesses on the economic and environmental landscape of Arkansas.

Park Hill residents prepare for alcohol vote

NORTH LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) - Residents in North Little Rock's Park Hill neighborhood will begin voting this week on whether or not to remain the only dry section of Pulaski County.

The ordinance was first passed by neighborhood residents in 1967, and businesses haven't been able to serve alcohol since that time. For years, NLR chamber president Terry Hartwick has encouraged residents to support a proposal to allow restaurants to serve drinks, and now they'll have an opportunity to adopt that proposal.

"I can see Park Hill becoming another Hillcrest to some extent. Will it happen overnight? No, but it's a start," said the former North Little Rock Mayor. "I think it's important for Park Hill. I really do."

Hays announces bid for US House seat in Arkansas

NORTH LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP/KTHV) - Former North Little Rock Mayor Pat Hays says he's seeking the Democratic nomination for Arkansas' 2nd Congressional District, the first candidate to launch a bid for the seat that Republican U.S. Rep. Tim Griffin is vacating.

Griffin announced on Monday that he would not seek re-election next year, saying he wanted to focus on time with his family. Hays announced on Tuesday he was running for the seat that Griffin has held since 2011, citing in part that the recent government shutdown has led him to run.

"We don't do that (shutdown) in city hall, we never have," Hays said. "We look to solve solutions, there's no such thing around the state and around the country, there's Republican crime and there's Democratic crime - crime is crime and garbage is garbage, problems need to be solved, not to be kicked down the road and dealt with next year."
