The Fayetteville City Council has imposed a 90-day moratorium on annexations and a six-month moratorium on PCD (planned community district) proposals.

Pertaining to annexations, city planning staff said the city and county have begun discussions that may make this process smoother. In light of these discussions, staff requested that the council enact a moratorium on annexation applications for 90 days.

Pertaining to PCD district zonings, staff requested the moratorium be in effect for six months so that new development proposals are consistent with the upcoming transition the Unified Development Ordinance currently being developed.

The vote was unanimous.
