Doing Business With the City

Fayetteville is proud to be one of the fastest growing cities in the state, and one that offers diverse opportunities, whether you're a family, student, entrepreneur, developer, young professional, or on the brink of retirement. 

What separates Fayetteville from the rest, however, is the way we've managed our growth. Fayetteville is characterized by its unique natural beauty: the wooded hills and rocky streams of the Ozarks that can't be found anywhere else. In the midst of rapid growth, we're mindful of those natural resources and continue to hold a high standard for the quality of development in our city. 

Development, when done right, can contribute to and enhance an already wonderful City. We strive to provide our residents and businesses with a sustainable, healthy, interconnected city, all while staying true to our commitment to traditional town form. 

This page offers links to important departments, information, and resources to help you set your development plans in action. Please download the Fayetteville Development Manual, which reflects the principles laid out in our City Plan and outlines the standards we have established to keep Fayetteville one of the best cities in the country to live, work, and do business in. 

And don't hesitate to contact our Economic Vitality Department or Development Services Department if you have questions or need assistance.
