The City of Fairfield updated its Comprehensive Plan in 2009; the first major update to the Plan in over 25 years. Conditions and trends have changed dramatically as a result of rapid growth and development requiring a major overhaul in order to make it more relevant to today’s environment.
The Comprehensive Plan provides a strategic long-term vision to help guide the City’s future growth and development. Usually of a general nature, with a long-range outlook, it considers both separately and collectively, all factors affecting growth, development and economic prosperity. The Plan is not only an educational tool, but it also serves as a guide to public and private decision-making. The Plan makes recommendations in the areas of land use, roadways, housing, economic development, public utilities, city services, schools, parks, open space and sustainability.
