Do you have abandoned homes in your neighborhood?
LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) - Today's THV is working for you to answer your questions. We recently received a comment on our THV Facebook page about a large number of boarded up homes in Little Rock, particularly around the Fair Park, UALR area. The viewer wanted to know what the city plans to do about it.
THV's Matt Buhrman and Ron Copeland, the director of UALR's University District Partnership, met today to talk about the 16-block area.
According to Copeland, the university has acquired about 15 homes in the area as of now. Copeland says they're focused on acquiring these off-campus properties to use for university purposes.
