Residents invited to contribute to Fayetteville Master Path Plan

Let us know where new sidewalks and paths are needed! Complete our survey!

The Fayetteville Planning and Zoning Department received public input on the Master Path Plan during the Oct. 27 Main Street Market event, and those who missed that opportunity will have another one during the Nov. 16 Free Movie under the Stars event on the Old Courthouse Lawn starting at 5:30 p.m.

City representatives will provide information about the City’s Master Path Plan, then participants will have an opportunity to complete a short survey. Interested citizens may also sign up to receive project updates by e-mail (see link below).

“Fayette County is developing a county-wide path study, so this is good timing for the City of Fayetteville to do the same thing,” said City Planner LaShawn Gardiner. “The City already has several miles of sidewalks and paths, so we want to see how best to connect those in addition to constructing additional paths, that will connect with whatever the county may look to develop.

“Within the City, we’re looking in particular to connect our Historic Downtown District with the Fayette Pavilion development to the north and with the west-side developments, including Togwatee Village, Piedmont Fayette Hospital and Pinewood Forest,” Gardiner added.

To participate in person, look for the City of Fayetteville booth at the Free Movie under the Stars event on Nov. 16 beginning at 5:30 p.m. Event entertainment will begin at 6:30, and the movie “Hocus Pocus” will be shown after dark.

A map of the City will also be available at City Hall, where residents may place dots at locations where they think sidewalks and paths are needed.
