Together, community leaders are taking bold steps to revitalize our community, boost the economy, and serve people now and into the future.
BUILDING FOR FUTURE GENERATIONS
The city and several community partners recognize all Fairmont has to offer. There is potential for this community, including surrounding communities, to continue to expand offerings and be a place where people choose to live, work, and visit.
The Community Center is one of many strategic tactics towards economic and community development.
- A strong recruitment and retention tool for young families.
- Boost local economy through hosting recreational tournaments which generates visitors likely to spend money in our town during their visit.
- Instill inclusivity by being accessible to people of all ages and backgrounds.
- Keep children active, safe, and healthy through programming, camps, child care, and recreational activities.
- Promote healthy aging for older adults by giving them a place to come together for fellowship and activity.
The Fairmont Area Community Center will be located on the land between State Street and Johnson Street. The lot is next to Mayo Clinic and close to Fairmont Jr/Sr High School.
This site is centrally located within the community and is close to many other community amenities and resources. Additionally, the land is to be donated by MCHS Fairmont, and has basic infrastructure already present which saves on project costs.
The central location will make the Community Center easily accessible to the entire city, while drawing visitors to the parks, restaurants, attractions and other businesses in the heart of the Fairmont.
