As a small investor/builder/developer, our voice is sometimes lost in the hubub from media, state and national players. It makes you wonder if anyone is actually doing anything about it - and why they aren't asking You!

There actually are some forward-thinking leaders, organizations and even a few politicians who are working on solutions to this complex, thorny, stubborn problem - and They Are Asking For Your Input!

We're bringing you a non-profit think tank steeped in the research, a Bentonville City Councilwoman on a specially formed committee to address the housing issue and a local lender who sees the problem play out in his office every day.

The missing piece we're providing is your voice, your experience and your ideas for creative solutions. Now is your chance to engage in the conversation. We'll have a frank, lively and interactive conversation emphasizing a give and take approach.

  • Hear the statistics defining the problem
  • Bring your questions
  • Discover what's happening at the local level
  • Share your thoughts, ideas and comments
  • Be Part Of The Solution
