Re: “Think Big Little Rock makes its pitch to Little Rock Chamber

Perhaps this group could think BIGGER if they paid a visit to Metroplan, the central Arkansas regional transportation planning authority? they might learn something about transportation planning. - Sound Policy

Did you actually click through and read the report? Clearly not. He transportation section is really well done. As to whether they paid a visit to Metroplan, the #2 guy at Metroplan was on the transportation committee, as was a representative from Rock Region Metro. Instead of shooting off a negative comment simply because you saw the word chamber, you should take a look at the ideas that this group of young professionals spent the last year working on. Theres some really good stuff there.

These are the same CEOs" who support the new corporate tax scheme for their companies and themselves. IVR2ALE

Did you even read the article? It said Think Big is a group of 25 to 40 year olds. Prob not too many CEOs in the group. And if you just read the Ideas listed above and didnt even click through to see the full report, youd see that the Ideas are far from corporate and are actually quite progressive.

Re: “LR city manager proposes $10 million polce car plan; no curb on commuting mentioned UPDATE

"Wouldn't fewer commuters also mean more cars available in the motor pool to avoid "hot seating..."

Maybe, but it's also possible that fewer commuter cars would just result in fewer LR cops. Give them a reason to move to LR, don't give them a reason to quit their job and seek employment where they live now. We're in desperate need of new police officers as it is - we can't afford to lose any.

Re: “Little Rock makes a Sweet 16. It's not a good thing

What the Streetsblog doesn't mention or take into account is the recent redevelopment of the area surrounding the travel center, with more yet to come. Several the parking lots shown on the aerial are no longer parking lots: the entire half block immediately north of the travel center (1 & 1/2 of which is shown on the aerial as surface parking) is under construction as a new hotel. To the immediate south along Rock St, the nearly half block of parking shown in the aerial is now a Moses-Tucker apartment development. It also doesn't account for the fact that a number of the labeled buildings surrounding the travel center are new developments, like the MacArthur Commons apartments and the Homewood Suites hotel to the immediate east of the travel center. I'm not saying we don't have an overabundance of surface lots downtown - we do. But it's moving rapidly in the right direction and the aerial they used is misleading.

Re: “Gas tax proposals start moving in House committee

Also, because the retail price of gas already includes taxes, taxing it at the retail price would be taxing a tax.

Re: “Broadway Bridge contractor got a two-day headstart on six-month project

CBB - there was a decommissioning ceremony because the bridge was dedicated, upon opening, to the soldiers of WWI. It was therefore given a similar ceremony as the decommissioning of a battle ship.

Re: “LR Advertising and Promotion Commission votes to buy building at Markham and Spring

Sound - Ignoring, for a minute, the ridiculousness of your conspiracy theory, did you miss the part of the story where Bank of England was already trying to buy the building? It was the bank's offer to buy it that triggered the LRCVB's first right of refusal to purchase. Cromwell already had a buyer and didn't need LRCVB to step in.
