Overview

The walking tour of downtown Conway, Arkansas will showcase specific projects that have aided in the revitalization of downtown Conway. Kim Williams, Executive Director of the Conway Downtown Partnership (CDP) will lead the tour. The CDP focuses on the promotion, planning, and maintenance of an improved downtown Conway. In 2001, the CDP spearheaded a comprehensive, long-term development plan for downtown. Since its inception, the CDP, in collaboration with the City of Conway, Conway Area Chamber of Commerce, Conway Development Corporation, and Conway Corporation has been responsible for fostering millions of dollars in investments in the downtown commercial core. Kim will discuss public-private investment including streetscape projects and infrastructure improvements. As a result of the public investment, eleven major renovation projects have taken place in downtown Conway since 2006. Kim will communicate the strategies, partnerships, and tools planners and stakeholders can use to help revitalize their community’s downtown.
