City Asks for Survey Participation for Welcoming Fayetteville Plan
FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. — The City of Fayetteville is asking for opinions on potential strategies for its Welcoming Fayetteville Plan, which will focus on the inclusion and integration of new Americans in our community. The City just concluded its public input sessions, but the online survey, available in English or Spanish, is open until the end of the month.
The Welcoming Fayetteville Plan will identify strategies that will allow the City and its stakeholders to break down barriers and make everyday life easier for new Americans. The survey asks for help prioritizing potential strategies that were developed after meeting with local and regional organizations that work with new Americans. The stakeholder organizations represent several sectors such as education, health, transportation, culture, and economic development, among others. Public feedback will be used to identify existing conditions, community concerns, and focus areas for the plan, which is set to be completed and presented to City Council in early 2018.
Please participate in the planning process and tell us what is important to you. More information about the plan can be found at www.fayetteville-ar.gov/welcoming.
