Beebe to Headline Delta Bridge Project Progress Report

HELENA-WEST HELENA, AR - Governor Mike Beebe will deliver the keynote address next Tuesday to commemorate the release of the second edition of the Phillips County Strategic Community Plan, which outlines the achievements of the Delta Bridge Project since its 2005 launch.

Tuesday's events will be held at the Malco Theater on historic Cherry Street in Helena-West Helena from noon to 1:30 p.m.

The Delta Bridge Project is a comprehensive community development initiative in Phillips County.  The goals of the project are outlined in the Phillips County Strategic Community Plan, which was developed by more than 300 Phillips County residents during an 18-month strategic planning process.  The project has leveraged a $52.7 million investment in Phillips County since the first edition of the plan was released in August 2005.
