  • Survey for the Fayette Community


    These questions are intended for both current hamlet residents and also the broader community with connections to the hamlet (e.g. people who previously lived in the hamlet and/or own property in the hamlet).

    In the survey, we are looking for feedback for our preliminary design and policy proposals as well as seeking community voice on additional interventions desired.

    Message for the Community:


    We’re the Cornell Design Connect Team working to develop a revitalization framework for the Hamlet of Fayette. Our team has proposed a series of preliminary design and policy recommendations that we would appreciate your feedback on. Please let us know your opinions by filling out the survey linked below to have your inputs included in the revitalization process:

    Thank you!
