Phillip Sweet (of Little Big Town) was raised in Cherokee Village, Arkansas in the Ozarks. He grew up in a musical family. His mother had a weekend country variety show and all of his brothers and sisters were involved in music in some way. Phillip learned to play guitar and keyboards and wrote his first song when he was nine years old. When he was ten, he became a featured soloist in his church's touring musical group.

The City of Cherokee Village is seeking a City Attorney to fill a

vacancy. Resumes are accepted now. Email resume and include a

personal biography to .

Or mail to City of Cherokee Village, P.O. Box 129,  Cherokee Village, Arkansas 72525.


June 10th is the expected closure date for the bridge at the intersection of Hwy 175S &

Hwy 175 (Iroquois Dr. & Cherokee Rd).  The old structure will be removed and replaced

with a poured in place box culvert.  The road will be raised approximately 4 feet to meet

the new road level.  Detour sign age will be installed by ARDOT.

Police and Fire Departments have been preparing for the closures; if at all possible, ARDOT

will try to provide emergency traffic to pass.  This is the current plan; relocation of utilities

may influence these plans.

***Update.  On June 5th, 2024, the Mayor received a

call from ARDOT regarding the Hwy 175/Iroquois road

closure.  They are on schedule to close the low water bridge

on Monday, June 10th.  The closure will be from

Steve A Rose Trail (lower King-Rhodes parking lot) to

Cherokee Rd.  

The contractors have a 90 day window to complete this phase, which after they will be

fined.  Adam Watson from ARDOT stated that they hope to be done before that date.  

The contract is only for one bridge to be replaced this year, with the following bridge

to be completed in 2025.  Alternative routes into city hall:

From the South Entrance would be Okmulgee Drive.

From the North Entrance or use E. Lakeshore Drive.


As the road construction continues in the town center with State Highway 175s being closed

at the town center I would like to give people some alternate routes to use.

Driving from the South Entrance by Casey's the best route would be to use Okmulgee

Drive which will bring you to Cherokee Road at the town center.  If coming in the North Entrance close to Hardy I would suggest using Skyline Drive to Hiawatha Drive then

Sequoyah Ridge Road across Sequoyah Dam to Iroquois Circle to Highway 175s

Iroquois Drive.

I want to remind everyone that these are city streets and not designed for the heavy traffic

like the state highway is so please drive with due care.  I am also asking that all heavy

truck traffic stay on the state highways and not the narrow city streets.  Also with the

upcoming July 4th holiday, expect delays on the roadway and plan your route but enjoy

what I believe is the best Fireworks show in the area.
