Town of Fairfield STRATEGIC PLANNING MEETING for RTM Districts 8 & 10 Dec. 5th at Southport Galleries

Attention District 8 & 10 Residents:

Your RTM Representatives would like to update you on our Town's Strategic planning efforts and communicate ways you can provide your input to this important planning initiative. 

The Board of Selectman has established a Strategic Plan Committee (SPC) to develop a Plan for the town with a time horizon of 5-10+ years. This will be the first time Fairfield has done this. The SPC reports directly to the BOS. The potential issues 'the Plan' will address are things like: Taxes, Spending, Education, Economic Development, Infrastructure, etc. The SPC is  looking to obtain input from as many town residents as possible, since this project will outline what direction the town will take in setting policy over the next 5 - 10+ years.

As part of the planning process the SPC has been conducting workshops to collect input, viewpoints and ideas from across town and constituents: Residents, Business, town employees & managers, elected officials and students, both K-12 & Universities. In addition to the Community workshops already conducted, the SPC has also been assisting various organizations in running their own workshops such as: community organizations, religious organizations, clubs, PTAs, RTM Districts, etc.  

We have scheduled a session to provide an update and gather your input, for our two RTM Districts. This session will be similar to the larger community workshops already conducted, and will allow you to provide your input if you missed those sessions. By attending, you will be provided an update on the status and can submit your ideas.

RTM District 8 & 10 Strategic Planning update meeting:
Date: Wednesday December 5, 2018
Time: 7pm
Location: Southport Galleries - 330 Pequot Avenue Southport CT   

If you cannot attend, your ideas are still important. You can also go online at to fill in a questionnaire & survey. There are ones for adults and youth. 

Additionally, if you prefer you can also go to a Town Website at provide other general input.

To date the SPC has input from 500+ people, which may be more than most other community projects have done. However, the SPC would like much more, and there are many sessions planned possible between now and the end of the year, and a request to at least complete the survey.

Thank you for your participation.
