Go Forward Pine Bluff on Tuesday hosted the first of three listening events for residents to give input into the Go Forward plan as it evolves in the coming months and years. An identical listening event was held Wednesday night and another is scheduled from 5:30-7:30 p.m. tonight at the Pine Bluff Convention Center.
The roughly 100 residents who attended were given five questions to answer regarding the plan. The questions included: What would a vibrant, livable, attractive Pine Bluff look like? What role should downtown play in revitalizing Pine Bluff? What can be done to encourage new businesses to locate in the city? What is your perception of Pine Bluff and what will change it? And how can Pine Bluff become a city where former residents and new people want to live, as well as becoming a place of destination for visitors?
