Fairfield Town Plan
PlaceSense prepared an update to the Fairfield Town Plan, integrating the town's growth management program with the plan. A public workshop was held at the start of the project where participants were asked to consider various growth scenarios for the town over the next decade.The overall consensus was for Fairfield to maintain a very slow rate of growth with development focused within the town's existing village centers and areas close to the interstate and employment in neighboring St. Albans. After hearing from residents and analyzing population trends in the region, the Planning Commission decided to recommend a reduction in the number of permits issued annually for new, non-farm residences in Fairfield.
