Renaissance Plan Update

Community outreach efforts since September 2012 have included stakeholder interviews, a week-long “storefront studio,” online surveys and social media, marketing/advertising in print and broadcast media, presentations and workshops with the Fayetteville Planning Commission and multiple public workshops.

The new Fayetteville Renaissance Plan was adopted on May 28, 2013 by the Fayetteville City Council.

About the Downtown Renaissance Plan:

Fayetteville has updated its Downtown “Renaissance Plan,” establishing new goals and action items for the next 10 to 20 years. The current study updated the 2002 Renaissance Plan, a 10-year plan that has largely been implemented through streetscape improvements, the 300 Hay housing development, the Franklin Street parking deck and several other projects.

The downtown planning area extends approximately one mile in all directions from the Market House, encompassing 3,000 acres. Fayetteville State University is also within the planning area, as is a portion of the Cape Fear River, representing two very important components of the emerging downtown strategy.

“Thanks to the 2002 Renaissance Plan, Fayetteville’s downtown is experiencing a historical transformation,” former Mayor Tony Chavonne said. “Considering that our citizens and small businesses have invested millions to revitalize our downtown, the three-day storefront studio in December 2012 was Fayetteville’s recognition that the success of downtown hinges on our citizens.”
