West Fork, nestled in the Ozark Mountains, is ten miles south of the University of Arkansas at Fayetteville, Arkansas, and a half-hour drive to the home offices of Wal-Mart and Tyson. West Fork is nearby to popular destinations such as the Crystal Bridges Museum, Beaver Lake, Devil's Den State Park with hiking and biking trails, and the War Eagle Mill Arts and Crafts Fair. West Fork was founded in the 1880s on the banks of the West Fork of the White River. Founded by the timber industry, milling, and railroad commerce, our historic homes, parks, library, Farmers Market and community events preserve a small town feel in an area of rapid growth with a diverse and an expanding economy. Our beautiful Ozark Mountain scenery, mild four seasons, one of the best school districts in Arkansas, and opportunities for employment, recreation and higher education, make West Fork "Where the Best Begins".
April 2015How Are We Doing?Several changes have taken place in our city in the last several months. The City Council agendas and minutes make for more interesting and positive reading. You might want to visit those documents on our web site and attend City Council meetings. We have recently launched two committees, the Economic Development and City Beautification Committees. We have had two meetings and the numbers of active and interested citizens have grown. Our first big project is to focus on city beautification. We are using our “City-Wide Cleanup” scheduled for May 15 and 16 as a catalyst to promote “Community Pride, Neighborhood Pride, and Personal Pride” in our homes and property. West Fork along the White River is a beautiful, quiet community with people who care about our schools, churches, and city facilities. We are offering our city-wide cleanups to help everyone have a place to dispose of those items you no longer want, yard waste that is sometimes difficult to get rid of and to help our neighbors who aren’t able to do for themselves get rid of their used up items. You will be seeing more information about our city-wide cleanup in the near future. Watch for info on our City Website, Facebook, Patty’s email, posters, fliers and the marque. Take advantage of this city cleanup and the several other opportunities our city offers at its parks, Community Center, Library, 4th of July Celebration, West Fest and opportunities to serve.Charlie Rossetti, Mayor
