What do you see Bella Vista look­ing like in the next 20 years?

The city wants to hear your opin­ions, con­cerns and ideas on how the com­mu­nity should grow. Join in the plan­ning of the fu­ture of your city by par­tic­i­pat­ing in a Vi­sion­ing Sum­mit Work­shop for the Com­pre­hen­sive Plan 2040. The work­shop is from 6 to 8 p.m. Tues­day, Aug. 22, at Rior­dan Hall.

The city has con­tracted with con­sul­tants Gould Evans for this project. The team will pro­vide an over­view of in­for­ma­tion they have dis­cov­ered about the com­mu­nity in the be­gin­ning stages of this fu­ture-plan­ning process. Gould Evans rep­re­sen­ta­tives will lead par­tic­i­pants through small group ex­er­cises and dis­cus­sions about chal­lenges and op­por­tu­ni­ties fac­ing the city to­day.

The goal of this meet­ing is to draft a vi­sion state­ment, goals and tar­gets to guide de­sired changes in Bella Vista. Ad­di­tional meet­ings will be sched­uled as the plan­ning process con­tin­ues.

The Com­pre­hen­sive Plan is a vi­sion­ary doc­u­ment that cre­ates the frame­work for land-de­vel­op­ment codes, de­vel­op­ment stan­dards, in­fra­struc­ture in­vest­ments and eco­nomic de­vel­op­ment, and that in­forms de­ci­sion mak­ing through­out the city. The plan’s pur­pose is to serve as a frame­work for fu­ture plan­ning doc­u­ments, as well as a pol­icy guide for res­i­dents, de­vel­op­ers, staff and elected of­fi­cials re­gard­ing fu­ture de­vel­op­ment.
