The latest round of public meetings to discuss the 71B Corridor Plan will focus on uptown Fayetteville.

Last month’s round of input discussed the southern portion of the plan, but meetings this week will be centered on the northern area between Interstate 49 and College Avenue, including the Northwest Arkansas Mall.

Two “studio session” meetings are planned to discuss possible design elements for the northern part corridor project. The sessions are scheduled from 5-7 p.m. on Tuesday and Wednesday (Jan. 15-16) at Christian Life Cathedral, 1285 E. Millsap Road.

From a news release:

These will be highly interactive meetings, giving participants an opportunity to discuss their ideas and draw them on maps with city planners and designers from RDG Planning and Design.

The public is also invited to provide input through an online survey at
