Stormwater Survey 1

The Mayor and City Council are asking residents and businesses in Fayetteville to participate in a Flood Management and Water Quality Funding Study.

With our community’s growing population, stormwater drainage and flooding are becoming increasingly important issues. The City currently has no dedicated funding source to address its backlog of drainage needs or to meet regulatory mandates.

In order to avoid future drainage issues as our community grows, the City recognizes that there is an immediate need to find sustainable funding options for stormwater management. We also recognize that these options must be guided by some of the City’s key principles, such as ecosystem preservation, well-maintained infrastructure and facilities, and a financially sustainable City government.

Your input is vital to the success of this initiative. This first in a series of public surveys on this issue will identify drainage needs and gauge community opinion about the best ways to fund future stormwater management infrastructure and maintenance.

Fayetteville's Stormwater Funding Needs

The City currently has no dedicated funding source to address its backlog of drainage needs or to meet regulatory mandates. In order to avoid future drainage issues as our community grows, the City recognizes that there is an immediate need to find sustainable options for funding stormwater management. This section will ask your opinions regarding funding for these necessary repairs and additions to the current stormwater management system.

An "impervious surface" is any structure that rainwater cannot soak into, including roofs, driveways, sidewalks, roads, patios, and parking lots. Would you be willing to pay a monthly fee, based on the amount of impervious surface on your property, that would go toward providing additional flood management and drainage services? * required
