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 A public hearing is scheduled on Deltic's effort to get the Planning Commission denial rescinded.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.
