Arkansas Senate Bill 637

Arkansas Senate Bill 637 is an act to prohibit cities and counties from denying private property owners the right to cut down or trim trees, bushes or shrubs. The bill asserts that "the right to own, use, and enjoy private property is protected by the Arkansas Constitution and the U.S. Constitution; is a hallmark of Arkansas and American society, deeply embedded in the fabric of both urban and rural societies; and should be protected from undue interference by state and local government." A PDF of Senate Bill 637 is available at

Park Feature: Riverfront/Center City Master Plan, Elgin, Illinois

The Riverside Drive Promenade in Elgin, Illinois features tensile structures lit with Color Kinetics (Philips) RGB (red, green, blue) LED floodlights with 22 and 10 lenses. The two tensile canopies crossing the street are directly over speed tables, identified by wide rectangular colored paving (Pine Hall Brick English Edge 'Evanston Blend'), alerting drivers that pedestrians cross here to access the river overlooks. There is 6,900 square feet of permeable paving (Unilock's 'Eco-Optiloc') interspersed across the drive lanes and in the parallel parking spaces. The concrete pillars are veneered with Indiana limestone and have precast bases. The white cylindrical structures attached to them are coated fiberglass anchors for the tensioned fabric canopies (Span Systems, Inc.). An acorn luminaire is also attached to the cylinder on each pillar in lieu of placing poles there.
