Winning projects range from the extensive sustainability efforts under way in North Little Rock and Conway to the massive revitalization taking place in downtown Bentonville.

Arkansas cities are special in so many ways — from communities like Possum Grape and Fifty-Six to the metros of central and northwest Arkansas. But the 15 cities recognized here are standing out in special ways.

“We are delighted that the City of Distinction program has been established by Arkansas Business to give much-deserved recognition each year to a few of Arkansas’ outstanding cities,” Municipal League executive director Don Zimmerman said. “As citizens of Arkansas, we are getting more in the way of municipal services and programs per dollar spent than probably anywhere in the nation. We are proud and appreciative that this program will recognize some of those Cities of Distinction.”

Read on to find out just what these cities are doing in their communities to make such a difference — in essence, to make the patchwork quilt even stronger.
