NLR talks about the Big Rock Quarry

Posted By on Tue, Feb 19, 2013 at 11:31 AM

A discussion is planned in North Little Rock on the city's Big Rock Quarry property, a parcel briefly targeted last year for an apartment development. The outcry led to formation of a land use study committee. The latest announcement:

What does the public think about the future use of several parcels of city owned properties? That will be the question on the minds of the Public Land Use Development Task Force this Thursday evening when they hold a community meeting to get input on the Big Rock Quarry and several other important city owned property. All are invited to attend and participate this Thursday, February 21st, at 7:00pm at the North Little Rock Community Center, 2700 Willow Street.

The task force was established by the City Council when a proposed sale of the Big Rock Quarry land was announced last year. Questions arose about how the city could best use the property it has acquired over the years. “The task force has reviewed several parcels of city owned property and has considered several options based on that study. However, we want feedback from the residents of North Little Rock before presenting a final report to the City Council,” said Connie Phillips, Chairman of the Public Land Development Task Force.

While the Big Rock Quarry has received most of the media attention, several other important locations will also be discussed, including:

• The Lodge at Burns Park
• Baring Cross Bridge Property
• Smart House Way Parcel
• Young Road Parcel
