    Conway needs a REAL bike path, not bicycles painted on roads with no shoulders. I would love to be able to bike around Conway safely instead of taking my bike to Little Rock to bike on the LR-NLR paths and bridges.

    “In 2025, Conway partners with the school district to use existing playgrounds as “after hours” parks for neighbors.”
    This could happen now. Why wait? “Joint use Agreement” grants are available from the Arkansas Dept of Education…$5,000 a semester per school (not per district.)
