Benton County officials view courtrooms in Bentonville
Posted: February 17, 2017 at 1:08 a.m.
Benton County's justices of the peace got a firsthand look at the circuit court facilities Thursday night.
Walton family interests have supported plans to keep the court and related offices in downtown Bentonville. The Walton Family Foundation made $2.8 million available to renovate the courthouse and to buy land on Northeast Second Street. Walton family has said they’ll build a parking garage on Northeast B Street, near the downtown sites, and make space available for county and courts-related parking if the courts stay downtown. The Waltons offer reduces the cost of a downtown building project by about $11 million, according to information presented by consultants on the project.
