Heritage Plaza fleshed out

South Arkansas Community College leaders unveiled further renderings of their plans for Heritage Plaza this morning during an interview with the News-Times.

The estimated $700,000 feature will be implemented in two phases and showcase a central water fountain, a sprawling courtyard and lush green space, according to a release from the college.

The SouthArk Foundation recently launched a capital campaign to raise money for the attraction by, according to Gift Chairman Greg Withrow, “selling anything and everything in there.”

Donors can make contributions between $50 and $125,000 and will in turn have portions of the plaza named after them, he explained.

More to come in the News-Times.

    So based on the current image of the fountain, looks to me like it will be ‘smack-dab’ in the middle of the parking lot. If you take away Brookshire’s parking for the college (which students are NOT supposed to park at) and limited parking for the ‘convention’ center across the street, the only thing this looks like to me is many, many fewer parking places. I hated taking classes there because the availability (lack of) of parking spots. Now record enrollment = fewer parking places for students?? Could someone tell me WHY this seems like a good idea?

    This is a wonderful idea and a much needed addition to SouthArk CC. The college has added numerous parking spaces on every side of campus. This new green space will provide a campus like atmosphere and ties the buildings together like other colleges. There is plenty of parking for the current enrollment.

    I’ve got to think there would be a better use in the education of the students for $700K.
