When we started doing Economic Development Rehab Projects in Springdale, Arkansas back in 2011, the Historic Downtown Main Street area was a settlement of 80% empty store fronts.
Since we have been pursuing our endeavors, the start-up of new businesses and city beautification projects in the area have multiplied bringing in other heavy money investors, such as the Springdale City Governance, The Walton Foundation and Tyson Foods, each have committed themselves to area economic growth.
Recently the national media and the Wallethub.com analysis of more than 500 cities nationwide ranks Springdale the sixth fastest growing city in the nation.
The report uses data from the US Census Bureau, the US Bureau of Labor Statistics and the Bureau of Economic Analysis. It identifies ten key areas, including overall population growth, job growth and income growth.
1) In July, 2014, the Walton Family invests to rehab a city block (Ryan's property).
2) The Tyson Co. owns property downtown with plans to expand more office space here.
3) The historic Apollo Theater was sold in August of 2014 and is scheduled for rehab.
4) Recently, the Art Center of the Ozarks developed a Green Plan for a “public space”.
5) The Walking Trail which adjoins both Rogers & Fayetteville has a “new hub” in Springdale!
6) The City of Springdale has committed major funding for their Master Development Plan.
7) A multi-million dollar city park renovation is under construction at the Walking Trail Hub.
