Permits & Planning


Fairfield Borough is divided into five zoning districts, and each is governed by a separate section in the Code of Ordinances. Additionally, there are defined Airport Overlay and Flood Hazard districts.   New FEMA Flood Zone Maps to be released in 2018 will redefine the Flood Hazard District, and fewer properties will be subject to its restrictions.
