City engineer to speak to neighborhood association
Hot Springs City Engineer Gary Carnahan will present updated designs for road, sidewalk and bike path improvements along Whittington Avenue at 6:30 p.m. Monday during the Whittington Valley Neighborhood Association meeting in the Community Room of First Presbyterian Church, 213 Whittington Avenue.
Light refreshments will be served and the meeting is open to the public.
"Utilizing moneys from the Federal Land Access Program (FLAP) and city funds, the city of Hot Springs proposes to complete more than $859,000 in pedestrian, cyclist and other safety improvements in the Whittington Valley in 2019," the association said in a news release.
"Plans call for the installation of safe pedestrian and bicycle connections running the full length of Whittington Avenue, from the intersection with Central Avenue down to Baseball Trail Park. Traffic calming elements, intended to reduce vehicle speed, are also among the proposed improvements."
Carnahan will present revised designs that incorporate feedback received at a November 2018 meeting with the association when he presented preliminary project designs.
"This meeting will allow Valley residents, stakeholders and the general public an additional opportunity to comment on the proposed improvements before plans are finalized and work begins," the release said.

Supper club to meet Monday
The Vegetarian Supper Club will meet at 6:30 p.m. Monday with keynote speaker Dr. Rheeta Stecker, who will present "The Human Microbiome" -- microorganisms that inhabit the human body and their importance in health and disease.
The Supper Club meets in the fellowship hall of the Hot Springs Adventist Church, 401 Weston Road. There is no admission charge and everyone is welcome.
Stecker and her husband, Dr. Elton Stecker, are well-known in Hot Springs for their years of medical service to the Hot Springs community, a news release said. "The Supper Club has been blessed with the many practical messages they have shared during their years here as health educators. Now in retirement, they will soon move closer to family in northwest Arkansas."
The Vegetarian Supper Club is an opportunity for those who wish to take responsibility for their health to learn more about living healthfully, and to share their food and fellowship with others. Attendees are encouraged to join in the potluck supper served prior to the meeting. Those who come may bring a vegetarian dish of their choice with the recipe to share with others, the release said.
