Duties of the Art and Architectural Advisory Committee

The Art and Architectural Advisory Committee (AAAC) is charged with the duty of reviewing all sign permit applications, building permit applications, and plans for the remodeling, addition to, & rehabilitation of existing structures, and/or construction of structures, within the Main Street Architectural Overlay District. The AAAC reviews all applications where such remodeling, addition, rehabilitation, or construction will affect the outward appearance of the building or structure.  The AAAC also reviews any proposed public art throughout the City of Fayetteville and makes recommendation on whether specific public art enhances or benefits the City of Fayetteville community.
