City Plan 2025

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:
