Council to hear report on Day Resource Center 


The Fayetteville City Council will meet for a work session at 2 p.m. Monday. 

Here’s what’s on the agenda:  

  • Day Resource Center: The council will hear a presentation from Cumberland HealthNET on Day Resource Center operations over the past six months since the center’s opening. Cumberland HealthNET operates the center for the city but will not renew its contract when it ends on June 30.
  • 2024 State Action Plan: The council will decide whether to adopt its 2024 State Action Plan, which lays out the city’s priorities for state funding and legislative opportunities. 
  • Strategic planning retreat debrief: The council will hear a report from its strategic planning session that took place in January. During the session, council members examined priorities for fiscal year 2024-2025, which begins on July 1. 
  • Cool Spring Downtown District (CSDD): The council will hear a quarterly report from the CSDD, a nonprofit which receives funding from the city, county and the Arts Council to maintain an arts and entertainment district in downtown Fayetteville. 
  • Downtown lighting: The council will review proposals from two engineering firms for the installation of nighttime lighting downtown. The lighting “has the potential to improve public safety in the downtown setting as well as assist to enhance the attractiveness of the area,” according to the meeting agenda. 
  • Stormwater development ordinance: The council will consider whether to have staff draft a stormwater ordinance amendment to align the city’s ordinance with newly-changed state laws about residential stormwater control measures. 
  • Council agenda item request: Council members have proposed discussions for potential action on the following topics: 
  • Mayor Mitch Colvin: Expanding the city’s homeowner downpayment assistance eligibility; initiative to increase the number of homeowners compared to renters in Fayetteville
  • Council Member Lynne Greene: Creation of towing ordinance 
  • Council Member Deno Hondros: Ending paid parking downtown at 5 p.m. instead of 7 p.m. on weekdays

The council meeting will take place at City Hall, 433 Hay Street. It will also be aired on Spectrum Cable Channel 7 and live-streamed at www.faytv.net.
