Deadline nears for
The March 21 deadline for Walnut Ridge to file its application for the Downtown Network, a division of the Main Street Arkansas program, is fast approaching, according to Lorra Whitmire of First National Bank, who is heading up the project.
The Downtown Network allows communities that may not be able to make the commitments required by Main Street Arkansas to still benefit from the program through their educational and strategic planning services.
An organizational committee has been working on the application; however, support from the community is vital and still very much needed, Whitmire said. The application must be accompanied by letters of support and a financial commitment of at least $4,200.
Those who would like to offer their support can contact Whitmire at 886-5959 or the Chamber of Commerce at 886-3232. Letters or contributions can be mailed to Lorra Whitmire, c/o First National Bank, P.O. Box 509, Walnut Ridge, AR 72476. Letters are needed by Friday at the latest.
