Where are you relocating from? What kind of restaurant and why did you choose FS? Do you want to live in town or the country and drive in?
Do you have a location picked out for the restaurant?

Maybe chaffee crossing its supposed to get developed a lot.

Are you opening a chain restaurant or is it an independant restaurant? What is your housing budget and do you have a family to consider? All these things do play a part in where you may want to live...

Fort Smith isn't a very big place. Your choices are pretty much the newer south side or the more historic north side. If you live in Fort Smith, you don't have to worry about commute as the town is very easy to get around and small enough you can be anywhere in under 15 minutes. In the Ft Smith area though, a lot of people live in one of the surrounding towns or country side and commute in.

15 minutes ,no, actually you can't...

I was talking to a medical supply delivery guy from Conway who had to run from Barling to downtown to get a part and he said it couldn't believe it took him nearly an hour to get down rogers one way.
I've seen some pretty bad traffic in Bangkok, probably worse than LA. Your not going to zip down one end of Rogers ave to the other in 15 minutes during rush hour and thats a fact.
Not to mention all the construction that will be going on at the interstate for the next couple of years.
You can zip around pretty well at 2am on a Tuesday though.

The road construction has definitely messed up zippy transit around Fort Smith, but you can still get from a to b rapidly once you know the streets.
Depending on the location of your restaurant, you could wind up living just about anywhere. Fortunately, with the schizophrenic layout of the city, you'll be able to find affordable housing a stones throw from wherever you wind up putting your restaurant.

I'm a fan of Fort Smith. The town is attempting to move more towards the Chaffee Crossing / Historic District at the moment. Some nice subdivisions and the road runs through Rye Hill as well. What was likely once meant to build out more towards Greenwood, has opted to move towards the very East side of Fort Smith.

Really nice area and it seems we always have more run for another restaurant.

Pocola might be a good place for a restaurant. They just built what looks like a seven story hotel at the casino, its pretty nice.
I know I have made them about $53 richer over the past few days.
There were some nice new looking villas for rent in Fort Smith off of exit 14 right before you get to the casino.
