Bentonville, AR…Since April 2017, City of Bentonville Staff, with the assistance of multiple public committees, have worked to determine the future of Bella Vista Lake and the 135-acre park. In October 2017, a grant from the Walton Family Foundation allowed the City of Bentonville to hire design consultants and engage the public to create conceptual master plans for the public park. The goal of the master planning process was to provide City Council with as much information as possible regarding construction costs, long-term maintenance costs and future programming. These plans were presented to the Bella Vista Lake Task Force on May 30, 2018 and the Parks and Recreation Advisory Board on June 18, 2018. The matter will come before City Council for discussion at a future date. The discussion is not on the September 11, 2018, City Council agenda.
City Staff will notify the press and public as soon as we know the scheduled meeting date.
