River Task Force Seeks Civic Group Feedback
The Arkansas River Infrastructure Task Force has created an
email address to receive ideas on river development from civic
Groups such as Rotary and Kiwanis clubs, church groups, Boy
Scouts and Girl Scouts, young professionals, active seniors and
others are encouraged to provide their feedback on river
development by emailing: email@example.com.
No idea is too big or too small. Comments may range from: river
infrastructure needs and priorities, environmental and habitat
concerns, or river development ideas.
Proposals received will periodically be posted online for the
public to review.
