The Little Rock City Board this week will consider a zoning request for the so-called East Village, the mixed-use development that Cromwell Architects and Engineers plans for three blocks along East Sixth Street at Shall for property including a vacant former paint factory.

The plan has no opposition. It would inject a major investment into derelict property and add to other nearby signs of life east of Interstate 30, including a couple of microbreweries, a distillery, Heifer International and the Clinton Presidential Center. (Good luck traversing Interstate 30 to get there when the Concrete Gulch engineers start building their 10-lane freeway to Cabot nearby.)

Here's the writeup on the project for the City Board.

Here's a sketch on land use.

This won't be controversial Tuesday. But two items will be: A cash incentive for new city employees who live in the city and City Director Erma Hendrix's proposal to require residency of new police officers. City Director Joan Adcock, seeking re-election and hoping to curry favor with current city employees, has said an incentive for new employees is unfair to existing employees. Hendrix has tried unsuccessfully to pass a police residency measure before.
