envision LITTLE ROCK 2013 ideas competition
The Why: In honor of the 100 year anniversary of John Nolen’s 1913 document Report on a Park System for Little Rock, the 2013 ENVISION Competition seeks to challenge design professionals and the public to generate imaginative ideas about the future of a neglected and disconnected site in downtown Little Rock. This competition strives to promote engaging, iconic, and transformative ideas to creat a new gateway into the city that will inspire, direct, and connect.

Annual Litter Index Survey
By assessing the types of litter in our community, this tool helps us determine the types of community-improvement programs we need in order to achieve the results we desire. By consistent use of this index, we can track overall progress and show hard evidence of successful community enhancement. The index also allows us to target areas of the community where we need to focus our efforts to get more community involvement in the Adopt-A-Street and other cleanup programs.
Cigarette Litter Prevention Program
Twelve ash recepticles have been purchased and install by KLRB in the River Market area and the 1400 block of S. Main. Pocket ashtrays have been distributed to smokers in Little Rock. To find out how to purchase some of these recepticles for you business or neighborhood, contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Keep Little Rock Beautiful partners with the City of Little Rock’s Public Works’ Adopt-A Street Program. This in an opportunity to beautify the city by volunteering to pick up litter and trash on selected streets. There are many streets in need of adoption. Keep Little Rock Beautiful targets streets identified in the Annual Litter Survey as the “Most Littered” and actively seeks out volunteers to adopt those in need.
Volunteers and groups identify a street (3-7 blocks or more) and pick up litter and trash at least 6 times per year. Public Works provides lists of available streets, signage, safety vests and litter bags, and scheduled pick up of trash collected. To get involved contact Keep Little Rock Beautiful at email@example.com or 501-765-3530 or Little Rock Public Works Adopt-A-Street Program at 501-371-4808.
Earth Day Events
April events bring awareness of the impacts of our lives on the environment. KLRB joins with others in the community to educate about litter prevention, waste reduction, recycling, community improvement, and community involvement.
