City Plan 2030 input sessions set for October

Every five years, residents get a chance to share their vision of what they think Fayetteville should look like in 20 years by helping make updates to the city’s long range master plan.

This year just happens to be one of those years, and beginning in October, a series of input sessions will be held to discuss what ideas the community has in mind.

Five years ago, nearly 800 people help develop City Plan 2025, a plan that was unanimously adopted by the city council and eventually led to the Walker Park Neighborhood and Fayette Junction master plans, the adoption of new street cross-sections, and the establishment of our city’s trail network.

Now, city officials are ready to hear people’s visions again in order to develop City Plan 2030.

Stakeholders will have four opportunities to provide input. City staff will facilitate two public input sessions on Thursday Oct. 7 from 6:00 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. at the Bank of Fayetteville on the square and on Friday, Oct. 15 from 9:30 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. at the Fayetteville Public Library. The session on Oct. 15 will be available via a webinar where participants will be able to offer comments and have questions answered during the presentation.

Community members will also have the opportunity to view information and complete a survey online between Oct. 15 and Nov. 15 if they are unable to attend the live input sessions.
