Envision Little Rock, why don't you?

Posted By on Fri, Feb 22, 2013 at 2:07 PM


Envision Little Rock 2013, a project of the design collaborative StudioMain, is a design competition to give downtown Little Rock a new "gateway," and all are invited to enter their ideas.

Envision Little Rock is focusing at an area on Interstate 30, from the Clinton Library to Hanger Hill on the east and the River Market district south to Sixth Street on the west, with the meeting of Capitol and I-30 as the center. The contest honors the 100th anniversary of John Nolen's "Report on a Park System For Little Rock," in which the famed landscape architect envisioned Capitol Avenue as a grand boulevard.

There's a March 15 registration deadline, with a walk-through for contestants planned afterward. The competition begins March 15 and runs through July 15. A jury will judge submitted ideas in August and the public will vote in September. Winners will be announced in November at a ceremony marking Nolen's plan for Little Rock.

  • City steps up police presence in Centennial Park

    The Little Rock Police Department has assigned an extra patrol to the Centennial Park area after a complaint by a property owner got Mayor Mark Stodola's attention. Paul Dodds, who lives on West 17th Street and Park and whose company Urban Frontier LLC has fixed up 10 properties for sale and rent and owns several more, emailed Stodola, the city board of directors and the police chief on Sunday. Stodola today directed City Manager Bruce Moore to increase "directed patrols" in the park area and "have Entergy light this place up like it is daytime. With summer break upon us we need to stifle this activity before it gets worse."

  • Tinkerers meet tie-dyers at Argenta Arts Festival and Mini Maker Faire

    Argenta is the place to be Saturday, May 2, if you like baskets, ceramics, jewelry, sculpture, fabrics ... and robotics, flying things, power tool drag racing, trebuchets ... and good weather, music and food. The arts and science are strong allies, so it was a fine idea to combine the Argenta Arts Festival (formerly run by the Thea Foundation but now taken over by the city) and the Innovation Hub's Mini Maker Faire.
