Welcome to the Town of Fairfax! Whether you are a long-time or new resident, a visitor, or doing business with our community, we welcome you and hope you will find this website a useful resource.

Fairfax Awarded $20,000 Construction Grant for Peri Park
The Town of Fairfax was recently named the recipient of a $20,000 national grant from KaBOOM organization after being named a “Playful City USA Community”. The grant requires a matching $10,000 to go towards the purchase of new playground equipment in Peri Park. The funds will be used to replace an existing structure that is outdated and bring more kid friendly play equipment to the park. The Parks & Recreation Commission is forming a new “Friends of Peri Park” group to help oversee this process. If you are interested in participating, please contact a FOCAS representative at 256-9207.
Upcoming Bridge Repair/Maintenance Projects
The Town of Fairfax is beginning a multi-year project to rehabilitate five bridges spanning the Fairfax and San Anselmo Creeks. We are committed to an open public process for this project, so we will be meeting with neighborhood groups to gather input as well as holding public workshops to share information, and hear your concerns and ideas. Please visit the project website at www.fairfaxbridges.com to get more information, find out about upcoming events, sign up for the project email list, and submit your comments.
The first public workshop was for the Meadow Way Bridge, on Wednesday, November 20, 2013. There will be another one for the Marin Road, Spruce Road, and Canyon Road Bridges at the end of January 2014.
