Speaking of potential and MacArthur Boulevard

As I drove home for lunch today I noticed the electrico workers were high in the air installing traffic lights at Junction Circle and MacArthur Boulevard. Which means an actual extension to I72 can’t be too far away. At last week’s MacArthur Boulevard Business Association meeting Norm Sims (country regional planning director) confirmed that the deadline is approaching proposals from planning firms that want to provide their expertise to complete the plan for MacArthur redevelopment; this plan will be funded by an 'earmark' that was included in the federal budget earlier this year. Here's hoping whichever firm wins the contract comes up with a fabulous plan that will inspire action.
