City moves forward on police substation on Highway 10

CONSTRUCTION PLANNED: For police substation.
  • CONSTRUCTION PLANNED: For police substation.

The plan has been in the works for at least three years, but the Little Rock City Board now is prepared to put on its agenda a $1.2 million contract with Moser Construction to remodel the Josephine Pankey Community Center at 13700 Cantrell Road for a police substation.

Efforts to convert the former Pankey school building into a variety of uses have languished over the years. The City Board agenda meeting Tuesday is to put the police station work on the agenda for action at the next board meeting.

The building has been vacant for more than a decade and been a bone of long contention involving the nearby Pankey neighborhood, a historically black enclave whose community organization owns the building. The city will lease space in the building for the substation.
