FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (KFTA)–Right now the Fayetteville City Council is asking for input on a multi-million dollar project pending in the heart of downtown.
This comes after the council approved a bond last night that includes a first of its kind Cultural Arts Corridor.
$21 million, that’s the amount the Fayetteville City Council approved to build this Cultural Arts Corridor.
But it can’t do it without approval from the people of Fayetteville first.
The recently passed bond says the council is going to ask voters on April 9th if they want this new addition.
Steve Clark of the Fayetteville Chamber of Commerce says the corridor will have an elevated sidewalk, trails, water streams and art installations.
more than 85 percent of the respondents said parking was very important.
According to the blueprints, the new corridor will stretch from Dickson street to the intersection of West Ave. and South St.
Wilson said, “We appreciate the fact that everybody listened to each other and figured out a compromise that would work, and appreciate the fact that the city wants to invest in the city.”

This new addition will not cost taxpayers anything extra, it will come from the one percent tax that’s already in place.
