New Street Name for Southwest Little Rock Community

New Street Name for Southwest Little... - LITTLE ROCK, Ark. --Changes are coming to one Southwest Little Rock community.

West 65th street-- between University and Hindman park-- will now be known as Hindman Park Way. It's a part of a community effort by the  Meadowcliff, Brookwood and Ponderosa Neighborhood Association.

Members petitioned for the name change-- which the city then approved on Tuesday. They unveiled the new sign early Saturday at the neighborhood block party held at the park.

"There was such a high crime rate on the opposite side of 65th street that we didn't want people to think that our neighborhood was associated with that, we have a very low crime rate here," says Stephen Mann, President of the Meadowcliff, Brookwood and Ponderosa Neighborhood Association.

All the new signs should be up within the month.
