North Little Rock Mayor Pat Hays has invited the cycling community to join in the opening of RockWater Drive:
Grand Opening of Rockwater Blvd.
North Little Rock, AR- You are invited to join North Little Rock Mayor Patrick Hays at 4:00 p.m. on Friday, August 17 for the Grand Opening of Rockwater Blvd., a new one-half(1/2 ) mile stretch of road which connects the roundabout intersection on Pike Avenue to River Road.
The news conference will be held in front of the Riverside at Rockwater Apartments at the west end of Rockwater Blvd.
The new road will allow closure of a portion of River Road to motorists, and allow exclusive access for pedestrians and bikers.
I'll have more to say on the subject of the land sale proposal, but, for now, I'll just remind you that a public hearing and possible is set for the August 27 NLR City Council meeting. I would be surprised if any minds are changed as a result of the hearings, but a strong turn-out, particularly of NLR residents, might help shape the conversation.
