Little Rock ward proposal redrawn

NEW MAP: Ward 1 changes.
  • NEW MAP: Ward 1 changes.

Little Rock city officials have redrawn a proposed new ward map for the city. It responds, particularly, to complaints from the Capitol View/Stifft Station neighborhood, which wanted to remain in Ward 3 rather than shift to Ward 1, and to Ward 1 City Director Erma Hendrix, who wanted more territory north of I-630. Her ward must grow because of population loss.

This link will take you to a version of the map that can be manipulated. You can enlarge it see precisely where boundaries fall.

On the jump is the new alignment by population and racial breakdown. Ward 1 grows from 70 percent in the original city proposal to 76 percent black.

  • 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.
