Proposed Sites For New Arkansas Veterans Home

Arkansas Department of Veterans Affairs released the proposed sites for new home.
LITTLE ROCK, AR -- Veterans officials hope a site recommendation -- for the new Arkansas Veterans Home -- can be on the governor's desk by the end of the year.

Here's a list of the suggested sites (cities listed more than once have two recommended sites):

Bald Knob/Judsonia
Benton/Haskell
Clarksville
Crossett
Fordyce
Fort Chaffee
Jacksonville
Jacksonville
Little Rock
Little Rock
Monticello
Mountain View
Newport
North Little Rock
Pine Bluff
Russellville
Searcy
Trumann
Vilonia
White Hall

Next week, commissioners will look over the proposed sites and try to make an opinion on the best location.

If you'll recall, a couple months back, a task force failed to come up with a site recommendation.

But for funding to all fall in to place and to get this project underway as soon as possible, the Arkansas Department of Veterans Affairs is pretty certain this time around will be different.
