In June, the City of Fayetteville was selected as one of four cities to undergo a site visit to determine which two cities will receive the $500,000 Sustainable Cities Institute Pilot Cities grant. Well, the verdict is in! Fayetteville is one of two recipients with the other city being Charleston, South Carolina.
The City of Fayetteville, in partnership with the National Center for Appropriate Technology (NCAT), will use the money to fund an affordable housing project in Fayetteville, a trail spur from Frisco Trail behind the Mill District to Walker Park, and an engineering manual to assist with the implementation of the newly passed Low Impact Development ordinance.
Ozarks Unbound has the detailed story. Check it out!
Congratulations, City of Fayetteville and NCAT!
