Long range planning in the City of Fayetteville is the goal of the City’s Comprehensive Plan. The Comprehensive Plan is a policy document that addresses population, housing, environmental protection, economic development, historic preservation, land use, transportation, urban design, community facilities, public safety and utilities.
The Comprehensive Plan was originally adopted in 1992, as required under the Georgia Planning Act of 1989. It was updated in 1995 with the addition of the Capital Improvements Element and Short Term Work Program. Because the City has impact fees, the Georgia Department of Community Affairs requires that the Capital Improvements Element and Short Term Work Program be updated annually. The Comprehensive Plan Population, Housing and Land Use chapters were updated in 1998. In 2003, the Population and Housing Chapters were updated to reflect 2000 U.S. Census data.
The Comprehensive Plan was adopted September 7,2017. The next major update of the City’s Comprehensive Plan will be in 2022.
