The Downtown Little Rock Master Plan is entering its final phase!


Thank you to everyone who attended one of our four public workshops last week. We had wonderful conversations and input, and are excited by the emerging direction for the Downtown Master Plan.

But, It's not too late to give us your comments!

The final survey on the emerging strategies and focus areas will be available online until the end of the day, Friday, March 15th at:

We encourage you to not only complete the survey but to please share it with your friends, coworkers, and neighborhoods so we can ensure everyone in Central Arkansas has an opportunity to be a part of the planning process.

NEW MacArthur Park Historic District Design Guidelines



Little Rock has a rich diversity of historic buildings, structures, and sites representative of the quintessential southern city, with charming and architecturally eclectic assets. The MacArthur Park Historic District embodies these qualities, having irreplaceable resources that define the city’s history and image. To help preserve these assets, the City of Little Rock and the Little Rock Historic District Commission, in partnership with The Lakota Group, has embarked on a comprehensive update to the MacArthur Park Historic District Design Guidelines. This project is funded by the City of Little Rock with assistance from the Historic Preservation Fund, administered by the National Park Service, Department of the Interior and the Arkansas Historic Preservation Program, an agency of the Division of Arkansas Heritage.

A successful Design Guidelines document depends on community input. We invite all residents and stakeholders to actively participate in this initiative. Visit the project website to find more information about the project, stay tuned to updates, and share input:
