City Seeks Public Input for Big Picture View of Transportation for 71B Corridor Plan
FAYETTEVILLE, Ark.— The City of Fayetteville is preparing a plan for the 71B Corridor and seeks public input over the next four months, November through January. During the week of November 13, planners are meeting with stakeholder groups and the public to explore transportation options from a “big picture” point of view. These include vehicle traffic, bus transit, bicyclists, and pedestrians. We want to hear your ideas for the corridor’s future. Stop by for 15 minutes or the entire session to share your ideas and help design 71B for the future.
Concept Design Input Meetings
First Baptist Church, 20 E. Dickson St. (corner of College Ave and Dickson St.)
Room M105 (please enter through main church office doors on north end of the building)
- Tuesday, November 13, 5 to 7 p.m.
- Wednesday, November 14, 5 to 7 p.m.
Planners will return in the following three months for additional public meetings and look at the developing 71B Corridor Plan in detail, including how the roadway fits with surrounding neighborhoods and businesses, now and for decades to come. The plan’s study areas are:
- N. College Avenue (North Street to northern city limits near the mall)
