City of Fayetteville Seeking Campus Input for City Plan 2040
The City of Fayetteville is in the process of preparing City Plan 2040, a comprehensive city plan for growth, development and city resources over the next several decades, and is asking for input from everyone who lives in the city.
University of Arkansas faculty, staff and students are encouraged to add their voices to the conversation by taking part in an online survey.
The survey can be found at https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/F6NPHC3 or on the City of Fayetteville website at http://www.fayetteville-ar.gov/1216/City-Plan-2040. The city website also has additional information about previous City Plan documents, some background on City Plan 2040, and a calendar of upcoming public outreach events.
A goal of the survey is to give planners information that is as representative of Fayetteville’s demographics as possible.

They looked good, and they proved to be blue ribbon peaches.
