The Harrison City Council is presented with a first look at a possible plan for the removal of Lake Harrison Downtown and to restore the flow of Crooked Creek to its original flow.
Presentations included the initial work of removing the weir and reforming Crooked Creek through the Downtown Area, with that project estimated to cost around $2.2 million.
Plans were also presented on possible uses and the look of the new areas.
Harrison Public Works Director Wade Phillips talked about how to fund the project and stated some help may be available through various agencies including the Arkansas Department of Transportation. Phillips also stated that the project would take at least 3-5 years to complete.
More discussion is planned for the April City Council Committee Meetings and some Public Hearings will be scheduled for input.
