SILOAM SPRINGS — City board members discussed May 5 the possibility of establishing a temporary entertainment district for nine months in downtown Siloam Springs.
Director Brad Burns initially made the proposal during the April 21 board meeting. The proposal is meant to benefit opening businesses by offering outdoor seating for restaurants and allowing customers dining outdoors to order alcoholic beverages with their meal from their table, he said.
The proposed district would run from Ziggywurst up University Street to Broadway Street then down Broadway to Main Street for the last leg up to Pour Jons. It would be open from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. Monday through Saturday.
Burns said he would like the board to come to a decision at Tuesday’s meeting and pass
