The Metro Little Rock Alliance (MLRA) has launched a new brand and website to market the 12-county region to corporate executives, site selection consultants and potential new residents as a prime location to do business and live in Central Arkansas.
The Little Rock Regional Chamber's vice president of economic development, Ben France, asked cities in the 501 area code to celebrate our region's successes on May 1, or #501Day.
The first project at the Central Landing development on the site of the former Conway airport will break ground this summer. Central Arkansas developer and Burkhalter Technologies Inc. CEO John Burkhalter today announced plans to build a $70 million development that incorporates 339 luxury apartments into 18.7 acres of the mixed-use development.
Conway is a growing city that still has a small-town feel. As a business owner, I appreciate that the Chamber makes a concerted effort to promote diversity within the city and support new businesses.
