2020 Bond Project Information


The City Council on Monday, Nov. 18 approved an ordinance calling for a special election in March 2020, during the Primary Election. We will be asking voters to choose For or Against the issuing of bonds to pay for the cost of three public safety projects in Bella Vista, along with a 1% sales tax increase to go toward the payback of those bonds. The projects are:

  • A new Public Safety facility, which would house a new Police Department, the city's police, fire and EMS dispatch center as well as the Bella Vista District Court
  • A replacement fire station in the Branchwood area that would take the place of the outdated and too-small existing Station 3 on Glasgow Road and allow for enhanced fire and EMS protection in that area
  • A fire training complex that will meet the needs to lower the city's ISO rating and create better trained, more accountable firefighters
