Fairfield is the 2003 winner of the Grassroots Entrepreneurship Award by the National Center for Small Communities. Why? Fairfield businesses have created 2000 jobs in the past 15 years – pretty impressive when your population is just over 9000.
In 1989, the Fairfield Chamber of Commerce sponsored the Fairfield Entrepreneurs Association (FEA) to focus on economic gardening. In a nutshell, the FEA not only “got it”, they ran with it.
