Environment

Forward Thinking

NWA Daily

Fayetteville is on the road to clean energy and is a leader in environmental sustainability.

  • Investing in the environment: Per an approved measure for a climate resilience plan, the City of Fayetteville plans to put $100k annually into a fund for “ecologically sensitive properties” and natural solutions to offset extreme weather. 
  • Direction for the future: The plan is yet to be drafted, but the idea is that it would inform future policies and actions and act as a guide for the preservation of our environment.

Business & Technology

The Sky's The Limit

NWA Daily

It’s officially happening — drone deliveries across Northwest Arkansas. 

  • Flying packages: Walmart invested in DroneUp in June after realizing it could offer customers delivery within minutes versus hours, and now has successfully started operations at the Neighborhood Market in Farmington. Operations will be live 12hrs a day, 7 days a week at the first NWA locations. 
  • To your door: The next two delivery hubs will be in Rogers and Bentonville and will open in the coming months. Even the most fragile packages can be flown by skilled operators and placed at a customers home in as little as 30 min.

Food

Meals Out

Wendy Wei

This week is traditionally celebrated with a feast on Thursday, though some don’t have the resources or desire for a home cooked Thanksgiving meal.

  • Around the region: We've found a few list of restaurants in the region that are either helping out with cooking or will be open for dine-in Thanksgiving day.
  • Helping hand: Additionally, on the 25th, the Salvation Army will be handing out pre-packaged meals at two locations in Northwest Arkansas and be delivering meals to first responders.
