Community center to revitalize old LR park

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) -- Little Rock city leaders finalized an agenda item on Tuesday that will allow them to buy four houses along the south end of John Barrow Road. Their goal is to turn the land into a football field and help bring long-time West Central city park back to life.

The football field will compliment a $6-million community center that has been under construction for about five months. It is set to become the centerpiece in a part of town that has been resourceful and smart with its money.

Ten years ago, the city bought West Central park for $1.

"This park was literally dead," said Ward 6 Alderman Doris Wright, who played a major part in the acquisition.

Dilapidated, and without power, White restored the park to where it is today.

"I took a gamble, and boy, did it pay off," she said laughing. "It is beyond exciting."

Residents rally against new subdivision

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) - There is a fight taking place over 100 acres of land in west Pulaski County. A developer wants a subdivision, but neighbors are worried about the environment.

Hundreds of new homes are on the horizon, but not everyone is for it.

"The subdivision is called The Trails. It's 150 acres and we have 266 lots."

Developer Wayne Richie says it will create new homes for middle class families, however neighbors believe it could harm the environment and make congested roads even worse.
