Local residents discuss policy recommendations during a City Plan 2030 input session at the Fayetteville Public Library on Oct. 15, 2010.

Fayetteville city staff will give policy recommendations for City Plan 2030, an update to the city’s long range master plan, during a presentation Thursday.

The community meeting will begin at 6 p.m. in the Genesis Building at the University of Arkansas Research and Technology Park, located at 700 Research Center Blvd.

The six City Plan 2030 goals:
1. Make infill and revitalization the highest priority
2. Discourage suburban sprawl
3. Make traditional town form the standard
4. Grow a livable transportation network
5. Assemble an enduring green network
6. Create opportunities for attainable housing

Policy recommendations are used to implement a course of action to advance the six City Plan 2030 goals.

Many of the policy recommendations of City Plan 2025 remain in place and the new policy recommendations that have been proposed in this update reflect the input of Fayetteville citizens who participated in public meetings between October and December of 2010.

The proposed policy recommendations:

  • Capturing a vision of a network of natural areas across the City
  • Changing the paradigm of attainable housing by also addressing transportation and energy costs
  • Prioritizing revitalization efforts on key corridors such as College Avenue
  • Light refreshments will be provided at the event.
