On April 3, 2018, the Fayetteville City Council voted unanimously (7-0) to approve and adopt the Welcoming Fayetteville Plan.
Augusta Branham from the city's Communication Department gave a presentation about highlights from the plan including recommendations to increase access to public transportation through multilingual route maps and a civic academy to help residents learn more about how to access city services.
We congratulate the City of Fayetteville for their leadership in developing a plan that is right for their community. The City of Fayetteville is one of many cities in the region that supports the Northwest Arkansas Council's Diversity and Inclusion efforts. Not all cities working on increasing inclusion will focus on the same efforts as Fayetteville, but we hope that parts of this plan can serve as a roadmap for what can be accomplished in other cities.
Here is an article from the Democrat Gazette about Fayetteville's plan.
