The City of Fayetteville's FY 2017 State Advocacy Agenda
Setting Priorities and Communicating the City's Interests
Mission: To ensure that the City's legislative agenda at the state level is properly prepared, effectively communicated to the appointed leadership and adopted in a manner that benefits our community's needs.
The City of Fayetteville is pleased to present the Adopted FY 2017 State Advocacy Agenda. The City Council works very hard to develop locally-rooted state priorities collectively presented to our State Delegation and the General Assembly.
The Fayetteville City Council supports the following list of priorities that represent the City's legislative needs and interest:
- Legislation to protect Fayetteville's Rental Assistance Management Program (RAMP)
- Legislation for Phase II of Veterans Park
- Legislation for Local Small Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (LSDBE)
- Legislation for State financial assistance in funding a downtown pedestrian overpass
- Legislation for the establishment of an Aviation Trust Fund for statewide improvement projects
- Legislation for funding Fayetteville's Consolidated 911 center
- Legislation for Regional Emergency Preparedness Fund
The City of Fayetteville is a member of the N.C. League of Municipalities, and Fayetteville Mayor Nat Robertson serves on the organization's Board of Directors. The City of Fayetteville strongly supports the legislative priorities set by cities and towns from across the state. If achieved, these priorities will grow jobs, stabilize municipal finances, and make our public infrastructure more resilient. By working together with other cities and towns through NCLM, the City of Fayetteville is able to help advance these priorities for the benefit of all municipalities in the state.
The City of Fayetteville values your representation and look forward to working with you closely on these issues.
