Officials are asking for public input about the Slow Streets program that debuted in Fayetteville this year.

Slow Streets was a collaboration between the city and BikeNWA, and included “soft closures” of several streets each Sunday to provide more space for biking and walking during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Locations included the Wilson Park neighborhood, the historic district, Dickson Street, downtown, and the South Washington Street-Walker Park neighborhood. The program concluded for the year on Nov. 1 in the Betty Jo Drive and Jewel Road neighborhood.

Officials said the public will help determine if Slow Streets will return in 2021. Residents are encouraged to complete a survey to provide input or to nominate neighborhoods for future Slow Streets locations.
