PARAGOULD, AR (KAIT) - Downtown Paragould has started its last round of construction on South Second Street.

Gina Jarrett, the executive director of Main Street Paragould, said it has been a long road but the work has been worth it.

She said even in the past few weeks, people continue to be drawn downtown either as customers or to set up shop.

"People are interested in coming downtown," said Gina. "We have an investor looking at property just to purchase downtown. So the whole feel, the whole demographic has changed and the streetscape project has just added to that tremendously."

Jarrett said their next big project is adding more storefront decorations that are unique to each store.
