Construction of a new criminal justice complex and renovations to city hall are underway in Springdale. The project, which is expected to take two years, will provide much-needed space for city services and increase efficiency for residents.

City leaders and several business groups unveiled their plans for downtown Springdale at last week's Invest Springdale Summit. They include a mixed-use development anchored by a Ropeswing Hospitality Group concept, dozens of new apartment units, a design for Luther George Park and a new movie production company.

In the '90s, an industry  boom in Northwest Arkansas drew large numbers of Latinos to the area.  During that time a group of women, mostly Hispanic, joined together to encourage cross-cultural participation. Today, half of the State's Latino population resides in Northwest Arkansas and The Hispanic Women's Organization of Arkansas continues to advocate for community engagement.

The Apollo was one of the grandest movie theaters in Northwest Arkansas in the 1950s and 60s. After falling into a state of disrepair and remaining empty for years, the building has been renovated and converted into a rental venue in Springdale.
