Mayor's Welcome


Welcome to the City of Fayetteville website, where you will find a vast array of information about City services that are provided each day to the 208,000 citizens of Fayetteville. I hope that the City website serves as a great resource to better connect you with one of our departments. Whether you are a resident, a business owner, or simply seeking contact information about City Administration or the City Council, you will find a wealth of tools on the website.

If you are new to Fayetteville or researching a move to our city, you will be delighted to know several great facts about our community. Fayetteville has won the All-America City Award three times, been named America’s most pro-military town by Time magazine, been deemed one of America’s most patriotic communities by Peter Greenberg of Newsmax magazine, and been heralded as the best performing housing market in the nation by Good Morning America, Parade magazine and

In addition, the Daily Beast selected Fayetteville as the number one market in the country for recent college graduates, the third best job market in the country by Manpower, Inc., the second highest per capita income in N.C. by the Bureau of Economic Analysis, and America’s seventh strongest building market by Business Week.

And I can’t fail to mention the crucial role Fayetteville serves for America, being located next door to Fort Bragg. As home to the U.S. Army Forces Command and Reserve Command, as well as our country’s rapid deployment forces (Fort Bragg’s 18th Airborne Corps, Joint Special Operations Command, U.S. Army Special Operations Command and 82nd Airborne Division), we are proud to say we watch over those who watch over us. As Gen. Hugh Shelton, former Joint Chief of Staff, once said, “When the world dials 911, the call is answered in Fayetteville.”

We trust that the City of Fayetteville website answers your call for service and meets your needs. Should you have any questions, feel free to call my office at (910) 433-1992. I appreciate your interest in the City of Fayetteville website and hope you return here often.

May God bless you and may God continue to bless our great city.



About Mayor Robertson

Nat Robertson was elected mayor of Fayetteville in November 2013 and re-elected in November 2015. He grew up in Fayetteville, graduated from E.E. Smith High School, attended classes at Fayetteville State University and graduated from Elon University with a Bachelor of Arts in public administration. He was a partner with his father in Robertson Jewelers and owned the General Nutrition Center stores on Raeford Road and Bragg Boulevard. Robertson now works as a physician representative for a clinical laboratory.

Mayor Robertson was the youngest council member ever elected to the Fayetteville City Council at the age of 26. He served four terms on the Council and as mayor, focuses on policy and not politics and on doing the right things for the right reasons! This is most evident in the Council's actions to re-establish the City/County Liaison Committee that will bring both boards together to openly discuss mutual policy interests for the betterment of the community. His support of the Police Department and the double digit reduction in Fayetteville's crime rate, along with his actions taken to strengthen and improve the community's overall quality of life, are unmistakable. Mayor Robertson was also the first mayor of Fayetteville to be named to the Governor's Crime Commission.

Mayor Robertson's priorities include reducing crime, making the City's residents feel safer; making the City more customer friendly; bringing common sense back to City government; and working with local businesses to promote and expand economic development. He believes business growth will promote a healthier and safer environment for ALL of our residents.

Mayor Robertson and his wife Kim have two adult children, Cameron and Carlin. They are members of Highland Presbyterian Church and both Nat and Kim are active in many civic organizations. Kim has been an administrator with the Cumberland County Schools since 2004.
