In response to residents’ requests for more sidewalks and recreational paths, the city of Fayetteville has hired an engineering firm to create a master path plan.
Downtown Development Director Brian Wismer said Jacobs Engineering will “help us develop the best routes to connect everything” and create a priority list based on feasibility. The city plans to focus on areas within its borders as well as where it connects with paths in adjacent Fayette County. Although the city’s new Downtown Redevelopment Plan includes more pedestrian infrastructure, additional public input will be sought to help identify more ways to expand connectivity.
The city is planning stakeholder meetings for October and December; Jacobs Engineering expects to give a final plan to the City Council in February.
