Fairfield, Forever


Fairfield Forever is a comprehensive plan for the City of Fairfield to help guide growth and decision-making through the year 2040.

The Fairfield Forever plan was given this name because it is meant to reflect a shared vision for the future of the community. The Fairfield Forever plan incorporated a mixture of engagement methods designed to provide multiple opportunities for residents to give their input on the long-term vision for Fairfield. The public input process included more traditional public engagement methods such as public workshops, as well as more interactive events such as box city.

The results of the public participation process helped inform the vision of this plan. The public consensus gathered helped create the goals, policies and action items that will help implement the plan. Throughout the planning process, there were common themes heard in all discussions and public input methods. The themes that appeared to be common amongst most community members revolve around the following ideas: housing, jobs and sustainability. This roughly twenty-year timeframe will include short-, mid-, and long-term goals and policies for the community. All projections for growth and facility expansion will be based on likely need in the year 2040.
