LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) - The executive director of the Downtown Little Rock Partnership is retiring next month.
The organization says executive director Sharon Priest will retire at the end of January.
Priest was selected to serve as executive director in January 2003. Under her leadership, the partnership has spearheaded the charge for revitalization of Main Street in collaboration with its stakeholders and the city of Little Rock, focusing on the redevelopment of existing structures, streetscape and safety.
In 2011, under Priest’s leadership, the partnership successfully held the first ever Food Truck Festival on Main Street, a festival that has grown to become a major, destination event for downtown.
The partnership is a nonprofit organization that promotes downtown Little Rock. The partnership’s board of directors will begin the search for a new executive director immediately.
