Bella Vista Virtual Stormwater Management Class: 

In order to apply for a Grading and Erosion Control Permit within Bella Vista, the property owner or contractor must first have a valid Stormwater Management License on file with Community Development Services. This class is offered online only and free of charge. The virtual class consists of two videos and a 10 question quiz. The class also offers other helpful documents and information sheets that are not required to take the quiz but can be useful on a construction site.
