The Town of Fairfield has scheduled a public workshop to get input
from Fairfield residents regarding possible strategies related to
increasing Fairfield’s housing opportunities. The workshop is scheduled
Tuesday April 1, 2014
7:00 PM to 9:00 PM
Board of Education Conference Room
501 Kings Highway East
Many people are surprised to learn that about half of Fairfield’s
housing units were built in a 25-year period between 1945 and 1970.
Those housing units reflected community needs and desires prevalent
during that period. However, since that time, Fairfield’s population
has changed and now includes many older residents and smaller households
who may be looking for other housing choices. Children of current
residents might also want housing units in the community they grew up
in. How best might Fairfield address these changing housing needs?
The workshop will provide an opportunity for Fairfield residents to
discuss the changing housing needs of the community and suggest
priorities and strategies for addressing those needs. Following the
public workshop, the Town will look at the identified issues and
evaluate strategies to help guide the community in the future.
Fairfield residents are encouraged to come to the workshop and
participate in the discussion. “This issue is important to many people,
and having an opportunity to share ideas will help Fairfield make good
choices and develop a plan to proactively address these challenges”,
said Mark Barnhart, Director of Community and Economic Development.
