IMAGINE CENTRAL ARKANSAS LAUNCHES NEW PHASE OF COMMUNITY OUTREACH
“Are We There Yet?” Lets Residents Choose How to Achieve Regional Vision and Win an iPad
LITTLE ROCK, ARK. – June 20, 2013 – Imagine Central Arkansas is pleased to announce the launch of a new phase of outreach highlighted by an “infoGame,” an interactive online activity. “Are We There Yet?” lets residents of central Arkansas set goals for the region’s future, and then make decisions about major trends, policy options, and funding sources to meet those goals.
“Are We There Yet?” is designed to inform central Arkansans about conditions affecting our future, and to obtain important feedback regarding emerging trends and policy directions that will predominate the region over the next three decades. Topics included in the online activity include transportation infrastructure, walkability, and revenue sources. You can play “Are We There Yet?” here through mid-July.
As an added bonus, participants who complete the infogame between June 21 and July 19, may enter for a chance to win an iPad mini. Visit Imagine Central Arkansas for more details.
In addition to “Are We There Yet?”, there will be a number of opportunities to connect with Imagine Central Arkansas over the summer, including:
· Hometown Visits at festivals, special events, expos and other community gatherings,
· Guest speaking engagements as requested, and
· Online 24 hours a day, seven days a week at ImagineCentralArkansas.org.
Those interested in having Imagine Central Arkansas for a Hometown Visit or speaking engagement may contact Judy Watts at (501) 372-3300 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Information on scheduled events can be found on our website.
Imagine Central Arkansas is the name used to identify the planning effort led by Metroplan, the metropolitan planning organization, to expand transportation, housing and development choices within the four-county region that includes Faulkner, Lonoke, Pulaski and Saline Counties, and to set priorities for transportation investments in central Arkansas. All individuals and groups who share a common passion for and interest in preserving our region’s rich culture, history and resources while planning for a vibrant future. Imagine Central Arkansas strives to be all-inclusive so that each and every voice has an opportunity to be heard.
Imagine Central Arkansas will culminate in a new metropolitan transportation and development plan by late 2013. Residents can learn more about Imagine Central Arkansas and participate at any time by going to www.ImagineCentralArkansas.org, facebook.com/Metroplan or via twitter @Metroplan, #ImagineCentralAR.
