The city of Maumelle recently put in two requests for services for different construction projects in the city.
Both requests were put out last week on April 12 and one is for a roundabout at the intersection of Club Manor Drive and South Odom Boulevard.
The other is for a long-discussed renovation of City Hall.
The roundabout, if it comes to fruition would be just off Maumelle Boulevard and behind Kroger. Club Manor Drive runs parallel to Maumelle Boulevard and the new-ish Maumelle Center on the Lake and fire station are both on the road.
The city is looking for a “qualified design firm with experience in designing roundabouts. This design should include developing a right of way plan, pedestrian facilities, utilities, landscaping, lighting and signage, as well as detailed plans and specifications for construction.”
Firms interested in the design work need to submit its statement of qualifications by May 9.
Proposals to renovate City Hall also need to be submitted by May 9 as well.
Work there is a remodel and renovation that would be “constructed in three phases in order to allow for continued operation of the facility and City operations.”
City Hall is a total of 23,200 square feet and includes a basement level that formerly housed senior services. That has since moved to the Center on the Lake.
City Special Projects manager Jack Stowe is heading up the City Hall project and for more information on it, he can be reached at 851-2500

The work should begin in May and be completed in June, weather permitting.
The contract of $316,433.28 was awarded to Cranford Construction Co. of North Little Rock.
