LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) – Residents of Spa City rallied in the downtown area Saturday, pushing to restore their community.
Concerned Citizens for Downtown Hot Springs and Save Her Majesty both teamed up for the rally this afternoon. Organizer Robert Taylor said he hopes the demonstration will put public pressure on the owners of the Majestic Hotel and the city to revitalize the area.
"I don't think it's the city's responsibility to actually go and clean it up because initially this is a result of negligent property ownership," Taylor explained.
The owners of the hotel say the ADEQ hasn't allowed crews on the property to start clean-up.
