I like to peruse the Little Rock City Board agenda posted on Friday afternoon's for matters of civic concerns.

Tuesday night:

* NAME CHANGE: A vote is set on the ordinance to change the name of Confederate Boulevard to Springer Boulevard. I expect this will be approved. This would complete a name change attempted in 1973, but which exempted a small portion of the road because of objections. Find the history here.

* CHENAL VALLEY: This could be interesting. Deltic Timber, the developer of Chenal Valley, is appealing to the City Board the nearly unanimous opposition of the Planning Commission to make a plat change and a median cut in Chenal Parkway as part of a street change near Rahling Road said to enable an expansion of an existing Bank of the Ozarks development. City staff also opposes the change. A public hearing is scheduled on Deltic's effort to get the Planning Commission denial rescinded.

* TIMEX'S TOLL: Again on the agenda is an ordinance to prohibit use of groundwater in an area of the East End where discharge from a former Timex watch factory left pollution. The ordinance is part of Timex's effort to settle with affected residents, but several have been objecting to this ordinance.

  • 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.
