City Plan 2025 - Neighborhoods

I attended the Council of Neighborhoods where there was further discussion about the City Plan 2025. Most of the discussions centered around the impact of growth on neighborhoods. Victor Dover summarized what people were concerned about.
  1. Green Spaces
  2. Walkable neighborhoods
  3. Keeping the Natural Landscape
  4. Densifying and Renovating the Main Traffic Corridors, especially College.
  5. Becoming Transit Ready
  6. Affordable Housing

Victor said that Fayetteville has suffered under bad, ugly, dysfunctional and inefficient growth. People are now asking for growth so that neighborhoods are compact, complete and connected. There is a final meeting Monday. I am looking forward to seeing the complete project.
