The Fairfield Beach Residents Association Board continues to work with the Police, Fire, Public Works, Health Dept. and the Office of the First Selectman.
In our continued effort to make the Beach District safer, the FBRA has donated a Solar Speed Sign for the west end of Fairfield Beach Road. We are happy to be the first Association to make such a donation to the Town. This sign was made possible thru the FBRA due to its commitment in hosting (for the 6th consecutive year) the Fairfield Firefighters 5K in June. Please consider volunteering for the 2017 5K.
Flood and Erosion efforts continue for our shoreline; unfortunately funds and determining what action to take constantly seems monumental. Several FBRA Board members have given hours of their time researching and attending seminars to see the newest technological advances made. Part of the learning process is that each shoreline presents different configurations and challenges for any given method. We continue.
In October 2016 the FBRA will offer all shoreline members 200 American Beach Grass plants. We have also extended the offer to members to pay 50% for the cost of one tree through the Tree Planting Program conducted by the Town of Fairfield.
The Penfield Pavilion is slowly but surely making progress as the main section was repositioned on its new pilings on August 30th. Decisions are in the process now to hopefully landscape the property in October 2016. Barring any more complications we will all enjoy a “new” Pavilion Spring/Summer 2017!!
Our success depends on you; please send in your dues or join in and help us to address: beach erosion, activities of town government, litter and neighborhood safety and to continue street cleanups, plantings, insurance, mailings, fees, contributions and other expenses related to our work on behalf of the neighborhood.

First Selectman Mike Tetreau will be joined by various town officials and Harvest New England representatives to discuss the scheduling and programming of operations at all three facilities and how the Town can work with residents to provide screening and improve aesthetics.
