Chaffee Crossing is the economic development engine of western Arkansas located at the center point of national business.
Over $1.65 BILLION in capital investments have resulted in 17 corporate and regional headquarters, more than 3,250 jobs and 1,050 students by 2024, 29 residential developments, and a variety of amenities resulting in an exciting, vibrant mixed-use community. People and businesses are drawn to the Chaffee Crossing lifestyle because this is Arkansas’ premier community where Smart Growth planning is key.
FCRA's June newsletter highlights the strong momentum Chaffee Crossing is experiencing in spite of current economic challenges, data from our 2019 Annual Report, and exciting stories about new developers, new projects, and community events. Summer 2020 is off to a bright start!
Arkansas College for Health Education (ACHE) will begin accepting applications for its school of physical therapy July 1. The three-year program will focus on hands-on, clinical experience with students graduating with a doctor of physical therapy (DPT) degree.
FCRA sadly acknowledges the passing of our former executive director, Ivy Owen, on Friday, June 5, 2020.
