The Town of Fairfax is an environmentally conscious community situated in the heart of central Marin County and is considered the most progressive of Marin’s 11 incorporated cities. Fairfax was incorporated in 1931 and has a current population of approximately 7500. There are not many easily developed lots left in Town so most of the planning activity is related to steep hillside lots and remodels. The population is quite diverse including a large “green” political base, the largest in the San Francisco Bay Area. Fairfax is a mountain biking and hiking Mecca because it is surrounded by committed open space and a nature preserve. The Town’s sylvan setting in the forested hills and its Mediterranean climate encourage outdoor activities year-round. Within a 30-minute drive of San Francisco to the South or the Pt. Reyes National Seashore to the West, the community is home to many local artists and musicians. Housing costs are reasonable by Marin County standards.
