Group pitches thermal pool complex for Hot Springs site
HOT SPRINGS, Ark. (AP) — Leaders in Hot Springs are taking suggestions for the redevelopment of the former Majestic Hotel site, which was ravaged by fire five years ago.
The nonprofit group Fifty for the Future is asking the city to include a thermal pool complex in the redevelopment of the site in downtown Hot Springs. According to The Sentinel-Record , the group also suggested restaurants, stores and a performing arts plaza.
The city of Hot Springs acquired the Majestic Hotel site in 2015 after it was condemned earlier that year. The newspaper reports the city has spent nearly $1.4 million to demolish three condemned structures and remove the debris from the February 2014 that destroyed the historic hotel.
The city says it will hold input sessions in the future on how to redevelop the site.
