The City of Fayetteville will host two public education and input workshops on streamside protection March 6 & 10.

03/02/2010

Input is needed for the development of a streamside protection ordinance.

The City of Fayetteville will host two public education and input workshops on streamside protection on March 6 and March 10. The Nutrient Reduction Plan, completed in April 2009 as part of an agreement with Beaver Water District and the City of Fayetteville, recommends the development and implementation of a streamside protection ordinance. This ordinance is part of a series of recommendations designed to reduce pollution in all the City’s waterways, which will improve the health of the City’s streams and reduce the costs of treating drinking water.

The workshops will include an educational presentation, a policy discussion and a short fieldtrip to College Branch, a local stream located at Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard and Razorback Avenue. Some of the questions City staff will ask attendees include:

   1)      What streams should have some sort of buffer protection?
   2)      What activities should be allowed or prohibited in the protected areas?

Attendees will need to provide their own transportation to the stream site and should wear appropriate clothing for walking along a stream bank. The presentations will be held at the City Administration Building located at 113 W. Mountain Street in Room 111.

Place: Room 111, City Administration Building
