Mayor's Message

On behalf of the City of Blytheville I would like to extend you a warm welcome to Northeast Arkansas, often referred to as "The Gateway to the South."

Blytheville is a progressive city and is the largest city in Mississippi County. We are leaders in industry, especially in steel manufacturing, and focused on education and economic development; while at the same time cherishing the aspects of quality of life that has kept us rich in community.

It is our community that has given us the opportunity, along with progressive thinking, to find out how we can improve our quality of life to attract new residents and business. We have a number of assets at our disposal including large land tracts of industrial properties, access to the Mississippi River waterways, Burlington Northern Rail Road, and an excellent transportation system by Interstate, U.S. Highways, and State Highways. We offer a small town feeling that's located between two major cities, St. Louis, Missouri and Memphis, Tennessee.

If you are considering Blytheville, Arkansas as a location for new business, thinking about moving here, or just visiting, we are happy to discuss all those possibilities with you. Please contact us. I look forward to seeing you.
