The Springdale City Council agreed to accept a grant that will go toward restructuring downtown Springdale.
- For the present: The original master plan was set in motion in 2015. The council determined that the plan needs a revamp due to societal changes. The new plan includes bringing new housing to the area and dividing downtown into districts for convenience.
- Solving problems: With the city growing and expanding outside of downtown as well, there is concern about an increase in traffic. The city is working with the Arkansas Department of Transportation to come up with the best solution.
