Explore proposed Little Rock wards in our new web app

Arkansas Times proposed Little Rock wards app image

Other projects have gotten in the way of our efforts to expand our public information Data section of the site, but I'm making the section a point of emphasis this fall.

First up are two dynamic map apps that I built in Google Earth and with Google Fusion Tables that allow you search within the boundaries of Little Rock's current wards as well as those that've been proposed by the city. Each provides a quick view of the ward's director and population numbers, broken down by race.

I forgot to cut Cammack Village out in both maps. That and some other tweaks aimed at improving precision are coming shortly.

Requests for other map apps?

    Preferred Family Healthcare, the Medicaid-enriched nonprofit with a vast network of service providers in Arkansas that gobbles up tens of millions of dollars in state funding annually, has been in the news frequently this year because of its connection to multiple federal corruption cases. According to the most recently available tax filings, in 2015 ten family members of top executive were on the payroll, drawing salaries from PFH — including relatives of all four of the executives who were put on leave in the wake of the scandals. Three of these family members were making more than $100,000.
