The City of Fairfield is processing a project called the Villages at Fairfield. The proposal involves amendments of the Citys General Plan, General Plan Land Use Diagram and Zoning Ordinance, and would result in development of approximately 440 acres, north of Air Base Parkway, between Clay Bank Road and Peabody Road. The project would result in approximately 2,400 housing units, along with an elementary school, two neighborhood parks, and a neighborhood shopping center of approximately 111,000 square feet. Project plans may be viewed at the Department of Community Development, 1000 Webster Street in Fairfield.

Environmental Impact Report
In March 2005, the City released a draft Environmental Impact Report (EIR) for the project. The draft EIR analyzes the project for potentially significant effects on the environment. Where feasible, the draft EIR also identifies mitigations that should be imposed upon the project to reduce significant effects to a less-than-significant level.
Each chapter of the draft EIR can be viewed in .pdf format by clicking on the links on the right side of this page. Chapter 1 presents a summary of the project and includes a list of all identified impacts and proposed mitigation measures. Chapter 2 presents a detailed description of the project. Detailed analysis of individual impact topics is contained in Chapters 3-11.
The draft EIR was available for public comment through May 2005. During the comment period, the City received 23 written comment letters. These letters, along with written responses to the comments, and any revisions to the Draft EIR may be viewed by clicking on the "Final EIR" link to the right.
