Our Mission

Located near the Iowa border with over 100 acres of park land, the Fairmont area is a great destination for any outdoor enthusiast and entrepreneur. For anyone investigating the City of Fairmont, the Community Development Department is available to assist site selectors, local businesses and business owners exploring the Fairmont area for expansion. The Community Development Department  is a one-stop shop for all development needs: economic development, planning and zoning, and building codes. The department promotes all commercial, industrial, and residential activity and coordinates everything from site reviews to incentives.
