ROGERS, Ark. (KFTA)– In Rogers, the city’s development is booming in response to the population growth.
The city has seen this growth happening for a while, which is why it had a special election to pass the 2018 bond issue last year.
But now, city leaders are seeing exactly where that money will be going.
The $180 million bond will be used to develop infrastructure for all of the city, but will focus specifically on West Rogers.
In that area, the city hopes to create a series of smaller roads instead of a few main ones to decrease congestion as well as promote business.
But it’s not just public development; private companies like Top Golf and Deluth Trading Company are eyeing Rogers to develop as well.
Ben Cline, the Public Relations Manager of the City of Rogers, said “So you’re starting to see a pocket of development in that uptown region of Rogers, so it’s really exciting to see that the private side of that development start to catch up with that public infrastructure that’s already in place out there.”
