Development Services

Development Services will be closed Wednesday, September 5th, from 8am-1pm for staff training. We apologize for any inconvenience.

“Fayetteville continues to blossom. What separates us from the rest, though, is the way we’ve managed our growth. Even with the rapid growth, we continue to hold a high standard for the quality of development in our City. Maintaining the quality of life and the beauty of the City is at the forefront in everything we do. We strive to provide our citizens with a sustainable, healthy, interconnected City, all while staying true to our traditional town form.”
- Mayor Lioneld Jordan

It is the goal of the City to be responsive to customers, to be effective in internal communication, and to achieve efficiency in the City by helping developers and citizens obtain the services they need in primarily one location.

Please explore our Development Manual to learn more about where we’ve been, where we are and where we’re going. Watch the video of Development Services Director Jeremy Pate's October 2016 presentation that provides insights into the Development Services Team and the City's processes and procedures for zoning, permitting, design standards, and the construction approval process.
