The City of Bentonville is currently operating under the 2007 General Plan. A planning process to prepare a new Community Plan began in the summer of 2015 with anticipated completion by December 2016. For details on this project, visit the website: or click on the project logo below.





The General Plan is a constitution that guides the future of the city by providing direction to city leaders as they make decisions. It states the city's vision for its future, outlines the goals and policies needed to achieve the vision, and describes how growth should occur. The General Plan is an important mechanism for the preservation of the city's urban form, the timely provision of public facilities and services, and the adoption of equitable funding mechanisms to pay for the public costs that new growth brings.
