Open House for Review of the Future Land Use Plan and Map Draft

Post Date:09/13/2019 2:25 PM

(Fayetteville, N.C.) – The City of Fayetteville needs citizens’ input as we develop a new Future Land Use Plan and Map. This is the first step in a new comprehensive plan that will guide the City’s growth for years to come. A Future Land Use Plan acts as a guide for zoning and planning and has a direct impact on how the city develops.

Citizens are invited to attend the open house scheduled for Sept. 17 from 4:30 to 6 p.m. at City Hall, 433 Hay Street, in the main lobby to view the draft plan and map. 

After the open house, the City Planning Commission will hold a Public Hearing at 6:30 p.m. for public comment. Anyone who would like to speak must sign up prior to the beginning of the meeting. There will be another public hearing in the future prior to City Council making a final decision on the Plan/Map. 

The citizen input we receive will be used in developing the future land use plan that will be presented to Fayetteville City Council for approval, hopefully before the end of 2019.

Sharing your opinion on questions like the ones below will help shape the future of Fayetteville:

  • Do you want to see more parks?
  • Would the City benefit from more commercial growth in a specific area of the City?
  • What type of development do you want to see in your neighborhood? 
  • Are there specific areas that you believe need to be redeveloped? 

There have been several neighborhood meetings to give residents a chance to share their thoughts on how the city’s growth should occur, as well as an online survey. 

If you can’t attend the open house or meeting on Sept. 17, you can view the information online at the below links:
