The city of Conway hopes to transform this 28-block area into a new downtown with parks, wide sidewalks and shops.

Covington said he didn’t have a timeline for when the projects might start.

“This is a long-term goal,” Covington said.

He said he’s waiting for the city of Conway to finish the park project before he makes his move.

“Timing on a deal like this is critical,” Covington said. “If people can see things going on, … I think it’s going to open up just a whole lot of things downtown. It’s going to make people feel better that there’s actually something happening.”
