Pettaway Neighborhood Revitalization Manual for a Complete Neighborhood

The University of Arkansas Community Design Center has released the final copy of the manual it has been working on in collaboration with residents and community leaders from the Pettaway Neighborhood.  This project began over 2 years ago with a grant application to the National Endowment for the Arts as part of their NEA Access to Artistic Excellence grant program, to create a Revitalization plan for the Neighborhood.  A collaborative project lead by graduate students from the University of Arkansas Fay Jones School of Architecture along with staff members of the UACDC, work began in the fall of 2011, and concluded in November of 2012.  Many thanks goes out to the many community members who volunteered their time to sit in on steering committee meetings to help the University in the process.  If you have any questions about this plan, or other activities in the Pettaway Neighborhood, you can email your requests to
