Fayetteville 2030: Transit City Scenario in Fayetteville, Arkansas by University of Arkansas Community Design Center

As a complement to Fayetteville’s 2030 City Plan, a 2030 Transit City Scenario Plan independently models a future based on development of a streetcar system. While city planning is generally future-oriented, scenario planning models specific futures from the insistent exploration of a particular driver through “what if” propositions.

Scenario planning helps the community envision plausible planning possibilities that would not have emerged from charrettes and similar participation processes. We ask: what if 80% of future growth was incented to locate around a street car system proposed for Fayetteville’s main urban arterial? The city could create a five-mile signature multi-modal transit boulevard, transforming under performing development into mixed-use transit-oriented neighborhoods.

The post-carbon sustainable city will be based on multi-modal transportation systems that support passenger rail and walkable neighborhoods in tandem with the automobile, and our objective was to prepare such a model for a five-mile segment between the downtown/university district and the regional shopping mall at the city’s edge.

Akin to the early 20th century streetcar cities, built at 7-14 dwelling units per acre, our plan updates the role of rail transit in reforming land uses for small town markets.
