Short-term Rental Work Group


On February 28, 2023, City Council approved a resolution establishing a Short-term Rental Work Group to study short term rentals in Bentonville. 

This is a six-month, nine-member work group  to study the effects of short-term rentals (STRs) and prepare recommendations for managing short-term rentals, if needed, in Bentonville. 

The role of the work group is to conduct an analysis of the short-term rental environment in Bentonville  by:

a) collecting feedback on the impacts of STRs in the community and local neighborhoods;

b) studying solutions to address negative impacts; and

c) preparing recommendations for managing short-term rentals in Bentonville.
