2020 Census Information


Recently the U.S. Census Bureau announced the launch of address canvassing, the first major field operation of the 2020 Census. This improves and verifies the Census Bureau’s address list of households, which is necessary to deliver invitations to respond to the census. The address list plays a vital role in ensuring an accurate census.



Census Bureau employees have started walking through neighborhoods to verify addresses not already verified through the Bureau’s computer software. They will continue to verify addresses through Mid-October.



Employees will have badges and briefcases indicating their employment with the Census Bureau. They will knock on doors, show their official government ID badge, explain the purpose of the visit and ask a few questions to verify the address and any additional living quarters on the property for inclusion in the census.



For more details about address canvassing, read the official press release.



The Census Bureau website offers all the information you need to learn about the entire process.

Burn Ban Is in Effect


The Town of Fairview has implemented a burn ban.  The Collin County Fire Marshal also issued the same burn ban earlier today for all unincorporated areas of Collin County.  This burn ban is currently in place for the next 90 days or until conditions exist to either lift the ban or extend it. In normal times, Fairview has restrictions on open burning but allows for residents on 10+ acres to conduct agricultural burns (with a Town issued permit) and allows for private home barbecue grills and barbecue pits to be used. 


During this burn ban, only the private home type barbecue grills will be permitted to be used.  The ban includes burning of brush and natural vegetation on any land parcel and in any outdoor fire pit or container regardless of size. A gas grill/gas fire pit is still allowed as it does not release embers that may spread and cause fires. If you have any questions, please review the Town’s Fire Code Ordinance: Fire Bans Section 5.01.001; Definitions: Open Burn, Section 5.05.001, Exemptions, Section 5.05.002 or call the Fairview Fire Marshal Travis Green at 972-886-4232.
