The City Council’s Street Committee is working to create a list of new projects that could be added to the Transportation Improvement Bond Program that Fayetteville voters approved in 2006.

At least one northbound lane of College Avenue between Center and Dickson streets will be closed Tuesday and Wednesday.

Tonight’s City Council meeting items include the formation of a group to study policies to promote urban agriculture, changes to the Farmers’ Market ordinance and more.

Handmade Market has a ton of items on sale this week. That and more in this week’s Flyer sponsor post.
