Conway Awarded Grant To Develop City-Wide Historic Preservation Plan

The City of Conway has been awarded a grant from the Arkansas Historic Preservation Program, a division of the Department of Arkansas Heritage, to develop a city-wide, streamlined historic preservation plan for the Conway Planning and Development Department and the Conway Historic Commission.

Planning and development director James Walden believes the impact of a city-wide plan will be felt for years to come.

Historic preservation is critical to ensuring future generations understand the Conway story and can see that history represented in the buildings throughout our community,” explained Walden. “And while these efforts foster that connection to our history and community pride, there are also tangible economic benefits to the community and property owners when our downtown and historic neighborhoods are vibrant.”     MORE
