The mayor of North Little Rock, Ark., wants to give RV enthusiasts a chance to enjoy the scenic downtown views along the Arkansas River by developing a new recreational vehicle park, according to Fox 16.com.
The proposed spot is on the North Little Rock side of the river between the I-30 bridge and the bridge next to the Clinton Library.
Joe Smith with the city of North Little Rock says central Arkansas needs new RV space. The mayor will submit his proposal to the city council. The new park would provide about 100 spots. The park would meet travelers’ electricity and wastewater needs and provide a few perks: a pavilion, a picnic area and a movable stage for concerts. And Smith says ultimately, the park’s campers would create revenue for local businesses
If everything goes smoothly, the RV park could be completed by next September. As for cost, Smith says it’s really too early to say how much it would be. After they submit the initial proposal to the city council, they can work up a budget.
Smith says so far no one has voiced opposition to the park. But this is a relatively new idea and the city welcomes residents to voice their opinions on the matter.
