Bella Vista Prop­erty Own­ers As­so­ci­a­tion en­sures the per­fect en­vi­ron­ment for res­i­dents

Northwest Arkansas Democrat-Gazette - - VOICES -

The Bella Vista Prop­erty Own­ers As­so­ci­a­tion was or­ga­nized in 1965. The fun­da­men­tal mis­sion of the POA is to en­sure that Bella Vista is the per­fect en­vi­ron­ment for res­i­dents, and to en­sure the city’s con­tin­ued suc­cess for the fu­ture.

The pri­vate 36,000-acre re­cre­ational com­mu­nity of­fers some­thing for ev­ery­one — seven golf cour­ses of­fer­ing 117 holes of golf, seven stocked pri­vate lakes, swim­ming pools, ten­nis courts, trail sys­tems, re­cre­ational cen­ters, fitness cen­ters, a gun range, RV and camp­ing park and more. Bella Vista prop­erty own­ers pay a monthly as­sess­ment fee to sup­port the high cost of main­te­nance and im­prove­ment of ameni­ties. Their iden­ti­fi­ca­tion cards al­low them re­duced pric­ing for amenity use and to bring guests. Non-mem­bers may use spe­cific ameni­ties (golf, lakes) for a higher fee. Most peo­ple don’t re­al­ize that non-mem­bers may uti­lize these ameni­ties.

The Bella Vista Prop­erty Own­ers As­so­ci­a­tion en­hances each mem­ber’s qual­ity of life by pro­mot­ing and im­prov­ing ameni­ties and re­cre­ational ar­eas in the Vil­lage. By build­ing com­mu­nity sup­port for parks and re­cre­ational lands, the POA strives to pro­vide com­mu­nity ser­vice and out­reach that meets the needs of mem­bers. The pro­grams and ser­vices of­fered by the POA pro­vide mem­bers with ex­cep­tional value and qual­ity, while em­pha­siz­ing the rea­son­able al­lo­ca­tion of re­sources through­out the city. The POA en­sures safe, at­trac­tive, and well-main­tained fa­cil­i­ties that re­flect mem­bers’ needs and best in­ter­est.

With a pop­u­la­tion of more than 28,000, Bella Vista was ranked No. 3 in “Safest Cities in Arkansas” by The Safe Wise Re­port in 2016. Bella Vista was also ranked one of Amer­ica’s Top 10 Best Healthy Places to Re­tire by U.S. News & World Re­port, as well as one of the Top 25 Best Places for Af­ford­able Homes by CNNMoney.com and Money Mag­a­zine. The me­dian age of res­i­dents is 50, with more younger fam­i­lies and res­i­dents mov­ing into the area.

Re­cent De­vel­op­ment

Lake­point Restau­rant & Event Cen­ter, which pro­vides lake-side din­ing and event ac­com­mo­da­tions, opened in June and there are al­ready more than 60 events booked, rang­ing from wed­dings and re­cep­tions to an­niver­saries.

This fall, the Coun­try Club will also be ren­o­vated with a new restau­rant.
