Bentonville will be the location of a new 2,200-seat Walton Arts Center and a new 600-seat facility will be built adjacent to the beautiful, existing WAC in Fayetteville. Seems like a 'win-win" situation, but the Fayetteville city attorney has opined that agreements signed in the past bind WAC to be located only in Fayetteville. He has said that Fayetteville should sue to stop the Bentonville site. At this point no official action has been taken. In the meantime, University of Arkansas issued a statement that it will not support a lawsuit. And in today's paper, some Fayetteville city officials have gone on the record against litigation, seeing it as divisive and counter productive.
And so the drama continues. For more information check my NW Arkansas Real Estate Blog.
