Hot Springs Downtown Comprehensive Development Strategy
On Thursday October 8, 2015, the City of Hot Springs, the West Central Arkansas Planning and Development District and the Hot Springs Metro Partnership hosted national economic development consulting firm Thomas P. Miller and Associates to present the findings from the six-months' worth of research and meetings with local stakeholders to determine the best course of action for revitalizing Downtown Hot Springs. Following the destruction of the historic Majestic Hotel, Hot Springs leadership resolved to find a better path for the future of its downtown and sought assistance from economic development consultants.
The City of Hot Springs, the Hot Springs Metro Partnership and West Central Arkansas Planning and Development District teamed up to create a comprehensive redevelopment strategy for downtown that will consider current economic development conditions and build new strategies for downtown Hot Springs. This implementation will lay the foundation for Hot Springs to fuel the economy for downtown businesses and residents to thrive, ultimately improving our regional competitiveness and advancing the region's economic prosperity.
