PINE BLUFF, Ark. (KTHV) -- Over the last 20 years, the city of Pine Bluff has seen its population decline by more than 10,000 people.
It's left parts of the city in disrepair, particularly downtown, where more than half of the buildings along Main Street are either boarded up, or worse, collapsed.
Four have caved in in the last year and a half, and it got THV11 asking what's behind it.
Through the Freedom of Information Act, THV11 obtained hundreds of documents detailing inspections and protocol along Main Street.
"I can tell you that business is slow," said Carter Davis, who manages an auto repair shop on the 600 block of Main Street. "We have good days and we have bad days."
The old Sahara Temple across from his store saw its roof cave in last July, creating a nuisance in front of his shop when the city shut down part of Main Street.
