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.

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:

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.
