Since Fayetteville will essentially reproduce another Fayetteville―approximately 160 million square feet―within its existing boundaries in just 20 years, the UACDC proposes to model a three‐dimensional 2030 scenario plan that envisions a different but plausible future based on emerging energy and transit trends. In the Transit City scenario we ask: what if 80% of future growth occurred around a new streetcar system along Fayetteville’s main commercial arterial, presently dominated by sprawl and the automobile? Fayetteville could create a five-mile signature multi-modal boulevard that features outdoor public art malls, transforming single land-use zoning into mixed-use transit-oriented neighborhoods while socially optimizing its transportation future.
