Darion Culbertson Mayor

Welcome to Fairview, an oasis of country living in the heart of the north Texas growth corridor. Fairview offers a lifestyle far different from that of typical suburban communities. Fairview has horse farms, neighborhoods with 1 acre and larger lots, an active adult community with an Arthur Hills-designed golf course, and an award-winning master plan for the town’s commercial district to ensure controlled and quality growth will continue into the future.

Even our 7-11 is different, boasting a front porch and a stained glass window set into a rustic stone wall.

Unlike the "flatlands" west of US 75, Fairview enjoys a gently rolling terrain with an abundance of natural creeks lined with native oaks and pecans. Fairview’s ecosystems include woodlands, prairies, bottomlands and wetlands. The town is adjacent to the 289-acre Heard Wildlife Sanctuary, which hosts more than 240 species of birds, mammals, reptiles and amphibians and nearly 150 species of wildflowers and other plants. The town worked in partnership with landowners and developers to develop intelligent and progressive regulations to protect the natural environment without sacrificing development opportunities. Environmental protections include a tree preservation ordinance, protections for creek greenbelts and floodplains, open-space requirements, and even a "dark skies" lighting ordinance designed to preserve views of the night sky.

Fairview also enjoys the best of modern amenities and infrastructure such as high speed internet service. The town is blessed with terrific schools, nearby hospitals and highly rated fire and public safety services. The town’s strategic location at the intersection of US Highways 75 and 121 puts residents close to jobs and only minutes away from restaurants, shopping, movies and recreation.

I extend my personal invitation to come and see what makes Fairview special.
