Little Italy to file petition for incorporation

May 13, 2015 1486

Today, residents of the Little Italy community in northwest Pulaski County will file their petition for incorporation to become Arkansas' 501st municipality. Under Arkansas law and given the population of Little Italy, a minimum of 200 qualified voters living in the proposed boundary must sign the petition before submitting it to the Pulaski County Clerk's office.

WHO: Kristy Eanes and Chris Dorer, co-chairs of the Little Italy Incorporation Task Force

WHEN: Wednesday, May 13 at 10 a.m.

WHERE: Pulaski County Courthouse / Clerk's Office
401 W. Markham St. - Little Rock, Ark. 72201

Once the petition is submitted to the Pulaski County Clerk's office, they will verify the signatures, make it public, announce a hearing and publicize the date of the hearing. If the Pulaski County Judge orders the incorporation should proceed, an order is sent to the Secretary of State's office.
