This site has been developed for the convenience of our residents and visitors. The City of Fairburn always strives to serve our citizens in the best manner possible and our website is just one of the ways we accomplish that.
Fairburn, just 25 miles from Atlanta, has grown from a sleepy town of 4,000 residents to a bustling city of over 13,000 citizens in the last 6 years. In spite of this phenomenal growth we have never lost our friendly small town charm and our sense of family and community.
Our website offers a wealth of information about our City. Here you’ll find important information on City Government and departments as well as a host of other information you may need. Please browse through this site and discover all the great things that make Fairburn a wonderful place to live, work, and to play. We hope you will return to this site often to keep informed about City activities and events by checking our Community Newsand Community Calendar sections.
We are proud of our community’s heritage and achievements and its potential for the future. We believe Fairburn is a special place – an ideal small city – large enough to provide excellent service but small enough to know and care about its citizens – a place where friends and strangers alike are greeted with warmth by all.
So welcome to the City of Fairburn. We’re glad you stopped by for a visit.
