The University of Arkansas Board of Trustees has approved a plan that would allow the University of Arkansas at Fort Smith to operate and possibly own the Second Street Live! facility in downtown Fort Smith.

Second Street Live! — located at 101 N. Second St. and opened in early 2010 at a cost of around $2 million — seats around 225 in the main performance area and has a flexible stage that can be adjusted for capacity and performance benefits. The facility will be open to rent for meetings, receptions and other gatherings.

Renovations to the Second Street Live! (SSL) building began in November 2009. The building, first constructed in 1890, has roughly 20,000 square feet divided evenly among the first floor and a basement. Click here to read the full story from our partners at
