Newly Elected Mayors Attend WAPDD Meeting


Newly elected mayors across our area attended the Western Arkansas Planning and Development District meeting last week. WAPDD is a primary source of information, support and services in the Western Arkansas counties of Crawford, Franklin, Logan, Polk, Sebastian and Scott.

Waldron Mayor David Millard, Mansfield Mayor Buddy Black and Hartford Mayor Mary Radley were all in attendance.

The mission of WAPDD is “To foster community and economic growth in our local economy by providing community and economic development, workforce innovation, transportation and emergency planning and various other professional services in support of our Region.  We are the central catalyst for community-centered economic development that links our counties, cities and businesses with state, federal and private resources to aid in a higher quality of life while promoting future growth for all citizens of Western Arkansas.”

With services and information that is valuable both to governments and to the general public, WAPDD impacts the region in areas such as community and economic development, transportation improvement, 911 emergency services, GIS/utility mapping and workforce development.

The board of directors includes leaders from all across the region from every community. Mayor Black, who is on that board of directors, said “they (WAPDD) are a great resource to our area.”
