Urban Redevelopment Plan
The City of Fairburn has prepared a draft Urban Redevelopment Plan, the first step towards revitalizing specific areas within the City of Fairburn. This Plan, in conjunction with other State legislative redevelopment tools and the City of Fairburn Comprehensive Plan, will be used to revitalize faltering commercial corridors, recruit and nurture small businesses, rehabilitate older homes and neighborhoods, ensure architecturally compatible infill development, and generate new adaptive uses for old commercial, industrial, or agricultural facilities. Further, it will help create opportunities to enhance the livability, economic opportunity, and overall vitality of the city. The City Council will be considering the plan for adoption at its December 9th meeting. The plan is available here.
