Re: Bentonville City Council Meeting, Tuesday, Oct 13, 6pm

Approaching 400 signatures to Free Little Sugar Creek, remove the dam! Bella Vista Lake was a poorly designed lake. 1. Lake to watershed ratio is 2,550:1 2. The largest area lake to watershed ratio in a lake built by Cooper properties, is 43:1 (Lake Ann). 3. The amount of nitrogen and phosphorus flo...

Re: Bentonville City Council Meeting, Tuesday, Oct 13, 6pm

This is our chance to show Bentonville mayor, Bob "the dam-builder" McCaslin, that we don't want his expensive and harmful dam across Little Sugar Creek, instead we want a free-flowing creek for all to enjoy.

Re: Stop the Bentoville dam project

Friends, There is nothing like spending the night on the Buffalo River to rejuvenate a soul after meeting with a Bentonville City Councilman who did not have time to visit the lake Bella Vista dam due to the weather, but said that the dam is not dangerous. Although, CP&Y Engineering says, "the dam p...

Re: Stop the Bentoville dam project

Due to the mayoral dictate that doesn't allow any public input in Bentonville City Council meetings which are not pre-approved by the mayor, there has never been a single public meeting to openly discuss this issue.
