Springdale is taking every step to become a better and safer city.
Tuesday, the city hosted it’s first town hall to hear from people about their thoughts and concerns on Springdale.
Springdale Mayor Doug Sprouse said he wants to hear from Springdale citizens, so once a month he’ll be going to different spots around town to answer questions.
Tuesday’s main topics included downtown changes, public safety and the upcoming bond election, which Mayor Sprouse is encouraging Springdale to approve.
As to why the mayor wanted to start up conversations with Springdale citizens, he believes it’s the best way to keep the city’s expansion positive.
“We’re a city of almost 80,000 people we got issues too. And I need to be able to stand in front of our residents and hear what they have to say and what their concerns are,” said Sprouse.
Most of the seats at the town hall were full, and a lot of questions did have to do with development and the upcoming bond election.
Springdale wants to keep doing this every month, and is looking for volunteers to give up their space.
