Question

What is the role of the Fayetteville Council of Neighborhoods (FCON)?

Answer

The mission of the Fayetteville Council of Neighborhoods (FCON) is to promote and enhance the quality, stability, and vitality of the various neighborhoods in the City of Fayetteville; to provide a forum for neighborhood associations to share information, experiences, concerns, and ideas; and to help facilitate communication between neighborhoods, through their associations, and government agencies.

The Council of Neighborhoods is made up of one regular (and one alternate, if so desired) elected member from each registered neighborhood association. This council is advisory in nature and is responsible for its own direction in terms of how often to meet, which issues to tackle, and what types of training and support they would like from the City. Allowable support depends upon the funding available, but there are many training options that can be arranged for little or no cost.
