University Avenue Design Workshop December 3 & 4

The Walkable and Livable Communities Institute will be in Little Rock on
December 3 and 4 to host a University Avenue Design Workshop.

The area to be addressed is University Avenue and the University
Avenue/Route 67/Highway 5 Intersection.

The purpose of the Workshop is to develop a plan to make University
Avenue and University Avenue/Route 67/Highway 5 Intersection walkable,
bikeable and automobile accessible though design, in order to be used by
all citizens.

Meetings will be held at the Bailey Center on the UALR campus (5905 W.
28th Street). Parking is available in Lot 13, across 28th St. from the
Bailey Center.

The workshop will begin on Monday, Dec. 3, at 8AM. All meetings are
open and you are encouraged to participate as much as possible. There
will be a community meeting on Monday evening at 6PM and invite
community representatives to meet with the team and hear a report and
comment on Monday's output

The UDDC is co-sponsoring the event, which is being funded by the City
of Little Rock, UALR, AARP and Pulaski County Road & Bridge Department.

Make plans to attend and share your thoughts for a walkable and livable
community!
