Fayetteville wants for feedback on its Energy Action Plan and will host two public meetings to receive comments from residents on the plan. The meetings will take place after a 4:30 p.m. City Council Agenda Session on Tuesday (Oct. 10) at City Hall and from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Oct. 14 at the Fayetteville Farmers Market on the downtown square.

With the plan, the city looks to promote and increase improvements in the climate and energy sector. The top goal for the plan is to reduce greenhouse gas emissions originating from Fayetteville by doing the following:

  • Increase energy efficient in new and existing structures
  • Increase the city’s clean energy supply
  • Reduce emissions from transportation activities
  • Reduce emissions from solid waste sent to the landfill

A draft of the plan is available on the city’s website by clicking here. Residents can offer online feedback on the plan by clicking here.

In February, Fayetteville City Council approved a study to develop the plan. The plan will be submitted to city council for a vote in November or December 2017.
