Sarah Lewis, a Fayetteville City Council member representing Ward 4, will not seek a second term during the November 2012 election. Lewis told us in January she planned to run for re-election this year, but said Saturday that’s no longer the case.

This week’s public meetings include the A&P Commission on Monday, a roundabout groundbreaking on Tuesday, a request for Letters of Interest for rehabilitation of the historic downtown bridges, and more.

The 2012 Gulley Park Summer Concert Series kicks off May 31.

We took a few photos during Wilco’s 26-song, double-encore set last week at the Arkansas Music Pavilion.
