“We know that in a 21st-century economy, and in a hyper-mobile economy, the smartest people can live wherever they want. So when you look at Bentonville and you see investments being made in art and culture, to give people a host of entertainment options but also to give kids an opportunity to learn and grow,” Cobb said.
Cobb said in addition to arts and culture, Bentonville is also becoming more bike and pedestrian-friendly.
