View Full Version : Ordinance declaring city Geocaching friendly.

A city council member would like to prepare an ordinance declaring Harrison a Geocaching Friendly City. Does anyone know of other cities in Arkansas who have done this? Is there any way to get a copy of that declaration to see how it is worded and put together? I think this would be an awesome step for out city to take. Any input will be greatly appreciated.

I believe that Clarksville did it several years ago, when the very first geocaching events started taking place in that cradle of Arkansas geocaching. More recently, about 3 years ago, I believe Morrillton did also. Perhaps some of the Johnson and Conway County geocachers can provide more information.

We have asked the county judges in both Johnson (Clarksville) and White (Searcy) counties to issue proclamations about geocaching. Also, the mayor of Clarksville has issued a proclamation too. They are not ordinances but just proclamations. Pictures were made when the proclamations were signed and the local newspaper used the photos and story as a news item.
