Most recently, the City of Benton adopted an amendment to the street ordinance governing the placement of street lights (Ordinance #66 of 2006) and adopted the Little Rock Drainage manual by reference (Ordinance # 45 of 2007).  You should also consult the most recent Arkansas fire code as you plan your subdivision.

In order to better serve you, Benton Utilities will provide an independent review of your subdivision preliminary plat, construction plans and final plat, in addition to review by the City staff.  Please submit all plans and plats to Community Development for dissemination to the appropriate departments.  We need 10 copies of the preliminary plat, 3 copies of the construction plans and 14 copies of the final plat.
