Staying Informed

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


Right-Of-Way Maintenance Program

The Transportation Division maintains public right-of-ways and other required public areas through the Right-of-Way Program which provides the following services:

  • Mowing
  • Brush trimming
  • Tree pruning and removal
  • Litter control
  • Emergency response for storms

City residents are required to maintain all forms of vegetation from encroaching into the City’s right-of-ways.  These items can obstruct the sight of traffic and may cause accidents. If vegetation belongs to a resident, the resident will be required to maintain it.

As right-of-way varies by street, any questions concerning the responsible party of vegetation can be addressed by the Transportation Division.

Please be prepared to provide the following information:
