Springdale Shrinks, Lowell Grows

On Tuesday, the council approved detaching the northernmost section of almost 2,500 acres the city annexed in July. The property, which is south of Arkansas 264 and west of Lowell, will go immediately to Lowell, which asked for the change.

Lowell’s council approved an ordinance in November asking for the detachment. The ordinance allowed Lowell to annex the property if Springdale approved its own ordinance.

The Springdale council didn’t vote on two earlier Lowell ordinances but it did approve a similar one from Cave Springs asking for property adjoining its city limit.
