Fayetteville Mayor Lioneld Jordan will host a public input session to discuss the planned new police headquarters facility from 6-8 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 13.

The meeting will be held on Zoom, and registration is required to speak.

The voter-approved headquarters is set to be built at the corner of Deane Street and Porter Road. A fire station will also be constructed on the site.

The City Council last week voted unanimously to approve a rezoning required to construct the new facilities.

During the meeting, council members asked administrators to host a public input session where the public could share their thoughts on the project.

Those who register for the input session will be given three minutes to speak about the project, according to a news release. Fayetteville residents will be given priority to speak first.

Participants are asked to consider and provide feedback on the following questions:

  • What are your priorities for the future of the Fayetteville police headquarters building?
  • If community space were included in this project, how do you envision the use of such space?
  • Beyond the police headquarters, what other amenities might be beneficial on the public safety campus?

“The city has heard that some residents feel they haven’t yet had adequate opportunity to provide their feedback on this important project,” said Susan Norton, the mayor’s chief of staff. “The mayor and I hope this public input session will give those residents an opportunity to share constructive, thoughtful feedback on this long overdue and much-needed public safety campus, which includes both a police headquarters and a new fire station.”
