Fayetteville seeks input from residents about public safety, livability, and more


Fayetteville officials are asking residents to participate in a survey to gather input on a range of topics, including public safety, livability, neighborhood cohesion, volunteerism and sustainability.

The Community Perceptions Survey began Monday and will be open through Jan. 3 at fayetteville-ar.gov/survey2016.

Paper surveys are also available at the Development Services office, 125 W. Mountain St., or through the mail by calling 479-575-8268.

To encourage participation, two participants will receive a $100 Visa gift card through a random drawing after the survey closes. Winners will be contacted no later than Sunday, Jan. 15.

The survey questions, format, and methodology are based on the Sustainable Tools for Assessing and Rating (STAR) technical guide, a system used by cities across the country to gauge economic, social, and environmental sustainability of local communities.

Fayetteville’s 3-STAR Community details are available at reporting.starcommunities.org.
