This past month at our plenary session, we held a large forum that brought together all task forces to discuss the goals, research and insights gained in the first phase (Research and Fact Find) of our initiative.
Huge thanks to Little Rock Mayor, Mark Stodola, for sharing his big ideas and speaking to our group of young professionals about future projects and vision for the Little Rock metro. Also, thanks go to the Little Rock Regional Chamber of Commerce, Create Little Rock, Fifty for the Future, and UALR's Institute for Economic Advancement for helping us plan and develop our strategies for this presentation.
Our next phase (Develop Strategies and Solutions) begins the shaping of actionable steps that will establish a path to completion for these plans and strategies. Be on the look out for a formal presentation later in the year with our fully vetted strategies for Arts & Culture, Diversity, Economic Development, Education, Public Safety, and Transportation & Environment.
