Vision Satetment

In the year 2020, West Memphis is an attractive, dynamic, busy, prosperous and exciting place to be for all age groups from a wide, regional area. 

The population has grown to 50,000.  Downtown businesses are meeting the demand of the expanded population, with a good business mix of services and specialty shops.

Traffic flow and parking is improved by restricting heavy truck traffic to the truck route and interstate systems. 

The majority of the businesses are owner occupied. 

The overall appearance is clean, well kept and inviting with well-lit sidewalks and storefronts, attractive landscaping and colorful banners.

Downtown is THE place to be.



Main Street

Based in historic preservation, the Main Street approach was developed to save historic commercial architecture and the fabric of American communities' built environment, but has become a powerful economic development tool as well.
