Federal Reserve Board Governor Roger W. Ferguson Jr. toured revitalized sections of Little Rock during a visit to the city Sept. 10. The governor's tour aboard the River Market Trolley took him past several areas under development and renovation, including the new South Main District, the River Market area, the convention center expansion, the new public library and the Clinton Presidential Library site, where Skip Rutherford, president of the William J. Clinton Presidential Foundation, discussed the complex with Ferguson.
Accompanying Governor Ferguson on the community tour were directors from the Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis and the Little Rock Branch. Owners of small businesses joined the group for lunch and the tour to discuss the business climate in Little Rock.
