Building on Success

The original Greater Northwest Arkansas Development Strategy that guided the work of the Northwest Arkansas Council and its regional partners from 2011-14 is now behind us, and we've turned our attention to "Building on Success: The 2015 - 2017 Blueprint."

With assistance from consultant Ted Abernathy and input from hundreds of Northwest Arkansas residents, the new blueprint focuses on such things as workforce development, economic development, physical infrastructure and regional stewardship. The new three-year plan was made public on Jan. 27, 2015 and work is advancing toward completion by 2017.
