The New Nice List?

NWA Daily

Fayetteville is one of 95 cities across the globe that the CDP recognized as an ‘A List’ city. 

  • Targets: The A List is comprised of leading cities in the fight against climate change — cities that are making progress toward ambitious goals. An A List city is also one that publicly discloses its city-wide emissions inventory, has a published climate action plan, and has an adaption plan to climate vulnerability and hazards.
  • Momentum: Fayetteville is right there with the other A List cities, identifying opportunities for sustainability and clean technology. A couple of Fayetteville’s goals are to divert 40% of waste from the landfill by 2027, and have 100% clean energy by 2050.

Food & Drink

Raise The Roof

NWA Daily

Dickson Street is getting a new resident, and everything we love about city life, restaurants, and live music just got a little bit better. 

  • Jam packed: Nashville-based Tin Roof is leasing the building on Dickson and West that used to be occupied by Hog Haus Brewing Co. The restaurant will have a full menu, a bar, and patio seating on both levels as well as a beer garden out back.
  • Music in the streets: There will be entertainment on all levels and live music seven nights a week from all different genres, levels of fame, and parts of the country. The goal is for Tin Roof to be open this coming Spring.
