Phase 1: Jan 2017 – Sept 2018

The University of Arkansas Community Design Center (ACDC) under the direction of Steve Luoni is working on the Downtown Master Vision and Plan. Steve and his team completed 3 listening sessions during the month of August and together with the Arkansas Economic Development Institute (AEDI) will use the ideas and thoughts of the residents to guide the plan. GFPB will establish the appropriate channels of communication between the ACDC, AEDI and the city departments and special interest groups such as PB Rising and the Delta Rhythm and Bayous Alliance.

The Arkansas Economic Development Institute (AEDI) has done a compilation of the August listening sessions. We were pleased to see that the recurring comments of the citizens who attended the sessions are aligned with the vision, mission and values of GFPB. It is a validation that the work we are doing is what the residents want for Pine Bluff.
