City Plan 2025 was adopted unanimously by the Fayetteville City Council in July 2006 and serves as Fayetteville's comprehensive land use plan. The plan promotes traditional town form and infill, and discourages sprawl. It also calls for the creation of a livable community through an enduring green network of greenways and trails, and a strengthened transportation network.
The City Council directed staff to conduct complete neighborhood plans throughout the city utilizing the charrette process to encourage public participation in the creation of these plans. Two of these plans have been completed and can be viewed through the following links:
The award-winning plan was created over several months through a public process of input and collaboration with consultants Dover, Kohl and Partners. City Plan 2025 won an American Planning Association state level award in 2006 and the Congress for the New Urbanism Charter Award for a Region and Metropolis Plan in 2007. It was also noted on the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's Best Practices list and cited by the Natural Resources Defense Council as one of the factors in ranking Fayetteville #6 in the smaller cities category as part of their Smarter Cities campaign.
