It's an exciting time to be a part of the Benton community. The Event Center has now seen in excess of 51,000 visitors since October 1, 2013. UALR has announced some important remodeling and other improvements, and enrollment is higher than last year. Exit 121 brings the Kroger Marketplace, Academy Sports, and many other first class stores and restaurants, which will be announced in the next few months. It's all good! Fairfield Inn & Suites by Marriott will have its grand opening in mid-September. I am more excited than ever to have had the chance to be your mayor for the last 4 years and look forward to many positive things that are going to be happening in our community in the near future.
Mayor David Mattingly
