Arkansas Bicycle and Pedestrian Transportation Plan
Arkansas State Highway and Transportation Department; January 2017
"With the successful development of the Arkansas River Trail and the Razorback Greenway, Arkansas is seeing a growing interest in bicycling and walking. Developing local trail systems, making it safe for kids to walk to school, and developing mountain bicycling venues and on-road touring routes are becoming high priority projects in many local communities. Recognizing these and other factors, the Arkansas State Highway and Transportation Department (AHTD) identified the need to develop a more robust bicycle and pedestrian plan for the state."

Downtown Springdale Master Plan
H3 Studio; 2015
Downtown Springdale stands at a crossroads. In the past, it has suffered from disinvestment, negative perceptions, and has not achieved the level of success in recent years that Northwest Arkansas’ other downtowns have enjoyed. Today, however, Downtown Springdale stands perched upon a groundswell of momentum for revitalization.
The Downtown Springdale Master Plan builds upon Downtown Springdale’s unique character and authenticity to return it to a vibrant center of commerce and creativity. What was forgotten will once again become the “Main Street of Northwest Arkansas.”
Fayetteville Active Transportation Plan
This Active Transportation Plan was adopted by City Council resolution No. 81-15 on April 7, 2015 and it will be used to guide the design and implementation of future bicycle and sidewalk infrastructure. The ATP sets forth a vision and a roadmap for measuring success, and it provides the general parameters for the prioritization and design of bicycle and pedestrian infrastructure without prescribing solutions for specifi c projects. Individual projects to be implemented should incorporate the vision and principles set forth in this plan, while balancing the goals of the plan, funding availability, citizen input and potential success for each project.
