the project

We want to make 7th street more beautiful, safer, and more walkable!! 

This tactical urbanism project will transform this space into a more attractive and welcoming area and would significantly enhance the overall aesthetic of South Fayetteville.

The addition of greenery, and public art would create a vibrant and inviting atmosphere, attracting more foot traffic and fostering a sense of community pride. This, in turn, would draw new businesses and residents to the area, further boosting the local economy.

Secondly, implementing traffic calming measures on 7th Street is crucial for pedestrian safety and creating a more walkable environment. 

Finally, the overall value of our community would undoubtedly rise with the implementation of this tactical urbanism project. A more vibrant, pedestrian-friendly, and aesthetically pleasing South Fayetteville would be a magnet for new residents and businesses, further strengthening the local economy and solidifying our reputation as a desirable place to live and work.
