FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (KFSM) — City leaders are still working to perfect a proposal for an entertainment district that would allow outdoor drinking around the downtown area of Fayetteville.
The city council met again Tuesday (Sept. 17) to try to figure out a plan for an entertainment district around the Walton Arts Center and the Fayetteville Downtown Square.
One of the main topics of discussion in the meeting was the closure of Dickson. If approved, the ordinance would allow outdoor drinking at special events with specific approval.
Matthew Petty for Ward 2 says he heard from businesses on both ends of Dickson Street, and they were concerned about closing the street.
