About the Plan

The Community Plan is a guide that serves as a foundation for decision making over the next ten to fifteen years. It is a planning document intended to:

  • Articulate a vision for Bentonville that reflects the community’s aspirations
  • Serve as a road map as the community evolves, grows, and changes over time
  • Act as a foundation for decision-making for stakeholders throughout the community
  • Achieve a more coordinated “collective impact” across all spectrums of community life
  • Address the issues, challenges, trends, and opportunities facing the community


The Bentonville Community Plan is in draft form and has not been adopted by City Council. A public hearing will be held prior to plan adoption via resolution. It is a planning document only and does not establish regulations. The City of Bentonville is currently operating under the 2007 General Plan adopted by City Council on May 22, 2007.
