While short-term projects are sometimes successful and sometimes fall by the wayside, the long-term goal of the Northeast Arkansas Regional Intermodal Facilities Authority remains to maintain a regional concept to recruit industry to the area.

The authority affirmed its commitment to work together by continuing its monthly meetings, as well as having committees meet, as needed, to handle specific needs.

One committee that will be formed soon is a Community Awareness Committee to work with civic organizations, as well as media, to help keep the public informed about the authority's efforts.
