The Fairfield Beach Road Association (FBRA), founded in 1955, was incorporated in 1970 to foster the interests of Fairfield Beach Road residents. The goals of the FBRA as stated in its By-Laws are: to represent and implement the interests and desires of the membership in maintaining and improving Fairfield Beach, Fairfield, Connecticut, and vicinity; to promote cooperation among the owners and renters of property at Fairfield Beach; to represent the common interests of the membership in relation to governmental authorities and generally to provide for the mutual assistance, enjoyment, entertainment and the improvement of all such persons in connection with residing in the Fairfield beach area.
In 1998 The FBRA amended its by-laws to expand the geographic coverage of the association. The new name became the Fairfield Beach Residents Association and the membership now includes residents who live in the area encompassing the Old Post Road to Beach Road and Reef Road and all of Fairfield Beach Road.
Dear FBRA Member,
Without a doubt the entire FBRA Membership was affected in some way with Hurricane Sandy; for many the struggle and challenge to get back to some normalcy continues. I hope that you all continue down that path successfully.
This hurricane considered by many and according to newspaper accounts, was the worst since the “Great Hurricane of 1938”. As a member of the beach community, and I believe I speak for all of the FBRA membership, I would like to thank our Police, Fire, Health, Public Works Departments and the many who support the Town of Fairfield for the exemplary work each of them did before, during and after Hurricane Sandy.
In the wake of this devastating storm it has left many with difficult decisions to make. Do you tear down and rebuild, tear down and sell, raise and repair, or repair and sell. We are acutely aware of the cost, the guidelines that need to be adhered to and of course the never ending issues with FEMA and other insurances.
The FBRA has tried to keep you informed with information, from the Town and the Federal agencies, necessary to recover. I am thankful for the help from FBRA members who too were and continue to be displaced from their homes.
Prior to the Hurricane the FBRA Erosion Committee continued pursuing methods and options to protect our shoreline. We plan to share some ideas at the FBRA Annual Meeting on September 11, 2013 from 7 – 9 at the Penfield II Pavilion.
The success of the FBRA will continue with your commitment to stay involved – I hope that you will. We will continue to address: beach erosion, activities of town government, litter and neighborhood safety. Your membership dues pay for our litter cleanups, plantings, insurance, newsletter mailings, legal fees and other expenses related to our work on behalf of the neighborhood.
