The Walton Arts Center in Fayetteville announced criteria for future expansion last night. Acreage and parking and a location near I-540 are desired. Does that mean the expanded center won’t be in Fayetteville? Alice Walton’s Crystal Bridges in Bentonville was mentioned as a possible point of reference for a new site. Fayetteville Mayor Lioneld Jordan says he’ll work to keep the center in Fayetteville.

Money does talk in such matters. Just saying.
