Bella Vista

Bella Vista incorporated community in late 2006. It is a carefully planned, private community of homes, townhouses, churches, commercial centers with business and professional services, medical clinics, library and $35,500,000 in recreational amenities, including eight lakes and 117 holes of golf.

The municipal government is currently at basic level. Many of the municipal services continue to be provided by the Property Owners Association.

The Bella Vista Property Owners Association charges propery owners a monthly assessment for use of the village’s facilities; $16 for a lot and $24 for a home. Some user fees apply. Townhouse owners are assessed an additional $55 per month by the Bella Vista Townhouse Association.
