Delta Rhythm & Bayous Cultural District
The Pine Bluff/Jefferson County National Heritage Trails Task Force and Delta Rhythm & Bayous Alliance is proposing a new cultural district which would include various landmarks related to topics such as civil rights and the blues.
Cultural districts serve many purposes, including:
Help revitalize neighborhoods and increase the quality of life for its residents;
Serve as a vehicle to assist in the support and marketing of local nonprofit cultural organnizations;
Serve as a focal point to brand a city's unique identity and embrace it's historic significance;
Have a significant economic impact on cities, attracting businesses, tourists, and local
residents to a central part of the city.

As stated above, cultural districts have significant economic impacts on cities.
