Welcome to the City of Ward’s website and thank you for visiting. I’m Charles “Charlie” Gastineau, your newly elected Mayor. Having an estimated population of over 5,000, Ward is the second largest city in Lonoke County and is continually growing.  Ward is, by definition, a bedroom community with most of our working residents commuting to and from work in other cities.  It is my commitment to move Ward ForWard, opening new opportunities for businesses and new residents alike to find a home in Ward.  If you are looking to locate to a growing community that still has that small-town charm, consider making Ward your new home.  I encourage all Ward residents to get involved in the community--- join the Chamber of Commerce, attend a church small group, start a non-profit, or…. open your own business.  To that end, I will be hosting quarterly (at minimum) “Town Hall” style meetings in which we can gather, bounce ideas off one another, and grow together as a community.  ​Join us as we move Ward ForWard.
