NO PAVING FOR ANY PURPOSE inside the 50-foot buffer or even the floodplain of city creeks and branches

A few examples of how building and paving trails on flood plains and particularly within the riparian (streamside) zones should be outlawed by the proposed riparian ordinance to be considered Tuesday by the Fayetteville City Council. The current version allows city trails FAR too close to creeks and most of the trails built already have removed vegetation and killed nearby trees and replaced absorbent soil and done about every kind of harm that the streamside ordinance is supposed to prevent.
