If selected, the artist will receive $ 300. Owners interested in putting works of art on their doors pay $ 600 for a single door or $ 750 for a double door. The price includes all installation and compensation costs of the artist.

Update offered in obtaining trace funds
The city will apply this fall for scholarships for the second phase of a road that will connect the Arkansas River Trail with Central High School, Brett Budolfson, a member of the Bike Friendly Community Committee, told the city's directors on Tuesday.
The planned 1.85-mile walking and biking trail would go from Arkansas River Trail to Union Station to Capitol Mall to Central High. The city is financing the way through three phases of financing of grants of the Federal Program of Access to the Lands.
According to the city's website, the first phase, which is underway, addresses safety improvements and erosion control on the river trail.
The second phase of the grant will fund a 0.7-mile portion of the trail from LaHarpe Boulevard to the Capitol Mall, and the last portion will fund the trail from the Capitol Mall to Central High.
Proposal down for burlesque club.
A proposed club with "female artists who dance in a burlesque manner" will not open in a community south of the city.
The owners of the property at 10305 Arch Street Pike, near the unincorporated community of Pulaski County, withdrew their application, attorney Stephen Giles said last week.
The zoning of the area was scheduled to be presented to the city's directors last Tuesday, after the Planning Commission rejected the zoning application from the owners to allow a private club. The owners appealed the decision of the Planning Commission, but then withdrew the appeal from the board's agenda due to lack of support among the city's directors, Giles said.
The property is owned by Choice Equity Investments LLC. Giles said the owners have "many different options" to develop that property.
"Unfortunately for my clients, they will have to make other arrangements," he said. "At this time, they are not going to make the club private."
Many residents opposed the proposed club, including Sen. Linda Chesterfield, D-Little Rock, who represents the area. Critics of the plan said the club would be a "sexual orientation business" and a quiet community distraction.
