71B Corridor Plan

71B Corridor Plan


A Preliminary Draft of the 71B Master Plan is now available for public review.

Click here to view the preliminary draft. This is a preliminary draft and should be considered a work in progress.

Public feedback is welcome. Those who wish to offer feedback may email City Planner Harry Davis at hdavis@fayetteville-ar.gov or call the City of Fayetteville Planning Division at 479.575.8267.


Last July Fayetteville launched a community planning process to rethink the 71B corridor. A critical goal was to engage the community to help develop strategies to improve the corridor’s economic vitality, increase affordable housing, make it safe and convenient for all modes of travel, encourage active and healthy living, and create an attractive front door to Fayetteville’s downtown and adjacent neighborhoods.


The 71B Corridor Preliminary Draft Master Plan Document, Illustrative Plan and Transportation Framework represent the project’s major work products for public review. These documents and illustrations are the result of an extensive citizen participation process which involved a detailed citizen survey, focus group discussions, five highly interactive public workshops/design studios, monthly 71B Steering Committee meetings, and input from our Planning Commission and Members of our City Council. The consultant team completed a detailed parcel-by-parcel analysis of the entire corridor, which is summarized in the Master Plan Document and depicted on the Illustrative plan.

Click here to view the proposed Transportation Framework for the 71B Corridor.

As depicted on the Illustrative Plan Transportation Framework, Fayetteville residents and business owners want to address increasing traffic congestion problems on the northern end of the corridor, and improve aesthetics, safety, economic vitality, and development potential throughout the corridor. Common themes were a desire to make strategic public improvements to attract private investment and improve the corridor’s image and livability. Participants understood 71B Corridor improvements would happen gradually and take time to complete, but that didn’t diminish their support for taking bold action and getting started immediately
