Metroplan Central Arkansas


Metroplan has received a $1.4 million grant from the U.S. Department of Housing and Development (HUD), the purpose of which is to develop a comprehensive regional plan for sustainable development. Funds will be used to more fully develop the long-range transportation plan to better consider affordable housing, economic development, health, environmental and energy concerns.


Setting the stage for implementation of the regional plan is a key feature of the HUD grant work plan. The Jump Start Development Plans are the first step toward implementation. In order to actually realize the development patterns necessary to promote livability, the market for sustainable developments will have to be provided by creating specific development plans that integrate housing design, development economics, municipal codes and regulations, and supportive infrastructure investments, all carried out in accordance with the Livability Principles espoused by HUD.
The puropose of the Jump Start Development Plans is to demonstrate how the Livability Principles can be integrated into community design and implemented in existing communities to impact the larger region.


Gateway Planning led the multi-disciplinary team to coordinate project application and selection by Imagine Central Arkansas Partnership, and perform the planning, visioning, public engagement, implementation plans and fiscal impact analysis for each of the projects selected.
