Community Conversation - "Working Together for Fayetteville's Success" - is an inclusive dialogue process consisting of a carefully constructed conversation that includes a diverse and broad representation of Fayetteville residents. The Community Conversation will bring together Fayetteville residents, local officials, law enforcement, community organizations and others to participate in honest and transparent conversations.

Building upon positive results from past efforts of Fayetteville’s Study Circles process that focused on various issues, this new effort will work towards creating and implementing a sustainable public engagement process for our City. Please come back regularly to participate in the online discussion or to find out more details about upcoming events.

For additional information or to register by phone, please contact the Fayetteville-Cumberland Human Relations Department at (910) 433-1696.

The Fayetteville Community Conversation series is being coordinated and implemented by the City of Fayetteville, the Fayetteville-Cumberland Human Relations Department and the Fayetteville-Cumberland Ministerial Council, in partnership with local organizations and institutions.
