“Metroplan acts as a voice of regionalism and has worked as the council of local governments and Metropolitan Planning Organization for central Arkansas since 1955.”

Small Cities Council

Small Cities Council logo

The Small Cities Council was created as a standing Board Committee for the purposes of focusing on the needs of the smaller cities in Metroplan’s membership area. Each of these communities is unique, but they all share conditions and challenges that are common to small cities. This Board committee allows the region’s small cities to focus on transportation and planning issues and develop a forum to aid each other on best practices in governance.
