Planning in Lake Maumelle

Posted By on Mon, Jan 31, 2011 at 4:17 PM

As we told you in our December 30th issue, today is the deadline for public input on a proposed land use plan under consideration by Pulaski County government that is intended to, “ensure that growth patterns and intensities of development within the (Lake Maumelle) watershed are consistent with the protection of our water supply, as well as of the scenic, recreational, and economic value of the watershed to our region.”

But good luck to anyone seeking information on where to direct your comments. There is nothing on the Pulaski County website providing guidance and to top that there is not even an announcement the county is seeking public input. You can view the plan, and see other public comments, here. Be sure to read the story above for some background. If you're concerned about developments in, and regulations regarding, the watershed, you can email your comments to Pulaski County's director of planning and development, Van McClendon, at All comments received at this email address before midnight tonight will be taken into account.

    The Arkansas Department of Environmental Quality has denied a new permit for the C&H Hog Farms' concentrated animal feeding operation near Mount Judea (Newton County). This is a big and somewhat surprising victory for critics who have viewed C&H's large-scale pig farm and the pig waste it generates as an existential threat to the Buffalo National River.

  • Trump immigration protest at LR: Quick and fierce

    It was not even 24 hours ago that Sophia Said, director of the Interfaith Center; City Director Kathy Webb and others decided to organize a protest today of Donald Trump's executive order that has left people from Muslim countries languishing in airports or unable to come to the US at all — people with visas, green cards,a  post-doc graduate student en route to Harvard, Google employees abroad, families. I got the message today before noon; others didn't find out until it was going on. But however folks found out, they turned out in huge numbers, more than thousand men, women and children, on the grounds of the state Capitol to listen to speakers from all faiths and many countries.
