The City of Fairburn has just that it has joined the Georgia Main Street network as an Affiliate. The program, which follows the National Main Street Center’s™ approach to downtown revitalization, is a tried and true management strategy helping activate volunteers in breathing life into main streets across America.
Many cities across the nation have recognized the need to revitalize. More and more there are walkable historic downtown areas that are the hub of the city. The city of Fairburn’s downtown area is a Commercial Historic District that is listed on the National Register of Historical Places.
Over the past several years, the downtown area has undergone a revitalization process and with this new partnership, the downtown area is well on its way to revitalization. Fairburn still retains its two train depots, both built in 1917 of red brick with tile roofs and wide, overhanging eaves. The City has completed renovation of both the passenger and freight depots which are occupied by law offices and antiques shops, respectively.
The ability to live in an active, community based area is on many homebuyers “must have” lists. The city of Fairburn is addressing this with their new SoFu Guide App to keep up with the latest events and receive important notification.
