Master Plan Overview

This master planning effort is a collaboration between the City of North Little Rock, The Argenta Community Development Corporation, and The Mill, LLC, to strengthen the revitalization of North Little Rock’s core as a civic, commercial, and cultural destination. This unique public-private partnership will lay the foundation for an implementation-focused plan that builds on Argenta’s history while laying a foundation for growth. In doing so, the plan will be a model for how North Little Rock can revitalize other aging districts in a way that is environmentally, socially, and fiscally sustainable, thus benefiting the downtown area, North Little Rock, and the greater region in the process.
