Bella Vista Comp Plan 2040

The City of Bella Vista is in the process of updating the Comprehensive Plan, the guide for future growth and development of the community. Over the next several months we will assess the community, define a vision for the future and prepare policies, strategies and actions to achieve a desired community future. We are in the initial stages of the planning process and would like you to help us assess the community.

Check back for the next scheduled public input meeting coming in spring 2018.

Community Frameworks public input meeting


Held Tuesday, Oct. 10, 2017 at Riordan Hall

Participants worked with consultants Gould Evans in the next step of the process to define six community frameworks: identity, development, connectivity, economic development, productivity and governance — which will be fine-tuned and then serve to guide decisions about the future of Bella Vista and provide the foundation for the Comprehensive Plan. 

Community survey and mapping tool, first Visioning Summit

To get a better understanding of the community and its use by residents, business owners and property owners, we prepared two different tools in August for your use: a Community Survey and a Community Mapping Resource. Each of these tools allowed you to provide specific feedback regarding your impressions and opinions regarding Bella Vista. These items are now closed, and information has been evaluated. The survey and mapping tool were followed by the first public input meeting, the Visioning Summit held at Riordan Hall Aug. 22, 2017.

We appreciate your participation in this process.  Please look for additional opportunities to participate in the future.
