Staying Informed

AccessFayetteville provides numerous ways to stay informed about your local government.


Development Services Department

                  Tracking a Project Online 

You can track the status of some projects from the City's website, such as private development review, building permits, and inspections. 

All development and permitting requests are public information and are available for public review on the website or in the Development Services building. A paper copy of all requests are still available in the Development Services building for public review, and staff is available for further assistance.                                     

Development Review                                                         

The Development Services Department now offers a digital submittal (e-submittal) option for private development review. This option is intended to increase convenience for developers and citizens and to decrease cost and waste associated with the standard paper submittal. Projects being reviewed through the e-submittal option can be viewed on the City website at:

Projects are organized in electronic folders by the City's schedule of meetings. Each file includes a description of the project, the required plans, and requested revisions from each Division that participates in the development review process.                                             

Permits and Inspections                                                   

Upon approval of a building permit application, the Building Safety Division will provide the applicant with a permit number and a Personal Identification Number (PIN). This information can entered into the City's Building Inspection System (see the link below) to check on the status of building permit approval or to schedule an inspection.

Engineering protects the City's floodplains, facilitates the installation of the City's infrastructure, and manages the transportation bond & capital improvements programs.
