Tactical Urbanism is a set of ideas, methods, and tools which help city governments and community groups work to build safer, happier, and more connected neighborhoods. These goals are achieved by installing short-term, low-cost pilot projects to test out long-term, permanent improvements to the built environment.
The City of Fayetteville is working to integrate some of the techniques and methods of Tactical Urbanism into our planning and development processes.
Street Plans Workshop
In November of 2016, City staff, elected officials, regional bike and pedestrian advocacy groups, local business owners, and University representatives met with the Street Plans Collaborative to learn about Tactical Urbanism and identify possible pilot project locations in Fayetteville.
Workshop participants identified the Spring Street corridor as a good candidate due to community interest in increasing bike and pedestrian access from the Razorback Regional Greenway to Downtown Fayetteville.
This page will be updated with the application and permitting process as soon as it has been established.
