The Fayetteville City Council will meet at 5:30 p.m. on Tuesday, March 26 to review proposed amendments to the two housing resolutions that were tabled at the groups’ most recent meeting.

That meeting included a three-hour discussion on addressing affordable housing in the city, and included two competing resolutions on how to move forward.

The first of the two resolutions was brought forward by council members D’Andre Jones and Sarah Moore, who said they agreed to sponsor a proposal written by a group called the Fayetteville Housing Action Coalition. The second resolution was drafted by Councilmember Mike Wiederkehr, who said he’d prefer a proposal that was less focused on emotional appeal and more productive in nature.

The workshop meeting will be held in Room 219 of City Hall and will use the same Zoom registration information as the council’s regularly scheduled agenda session. A live stream of the meeting will also be available on the city’s YouTube channel.

The public is welcome to attend the session, but public comment will not be available until the council’s next regular meeting on April 2.
