City Plan 2025


Nestled in the Ozark Hills of Northwest Arkansas, Fayetteville is a rapidly growing city with an annual growth rate of more than 3.2 percent.  This growth is twice as fast as the state as a whole, making Fayetteville part of the sixth fastest growing Metropolitan Statistical Area (MSA) in the nation.  Uncontrolled expansion has led to suburban sprawl, environmental concerns and increased traffic congestion, prompting City Council to initiate a 20-year plan to balance the preservation of community character and livability with growth and development.  Hall Planning and Engineering and Urban Advisors provided additional expertise for this project.
