The Planning Commission is an advisory body to the City Council in matters regarding conditional use permits, amendment to the zoning ordinance and zoning map, and the platting and subdivision of land. The Commission reviews and revises the comprehensive plan and recommends to the Council proposals regarding zoning, use of land and structure, and placement of structures as well as other regulations related to public health, welfare, safety and convenience.

The schedule below lists the 2017 meeting and publishing deadlines for notices to the public and the official city newspaper (Fairmont Sentinel) for planning, land use and zoning applications, which are required by state law to be heard at the Planning Commission or City Council level.

Take pride in your community! Adopt-a-Park for one year!

Adopting a park is a great way for individuals and all types of organizations – religious, schools, private businesses and non-profits – to adopt an area that needs care and attention. By committing your valuable time and energy, you will help support cleaner, safer and more beautiful parks in Fairmont.

Sweeping, litter removal, flower bed maintenance, and general clean-up (such as removing sticks and rocks from lawn areas) will be mainstays of the program. A little time and elbow grease are all that are needed from your organization to help continue to make our parks a safe inviting area for residents and community visitors.

For more information on the Adopt-a-Park program, please call 507-238-3942 and request an information packet, otherwise, please send us a private message with your organization's address.

Parks will be awarded on a first come, first serve basis.

Did you know....
Recycling CFLs and other fluorescent bulbs allows the reuse of the glass, metals and other materials that make up fluorescent lights. Virtually all components of a fluorescent bulb can be recycled.

Mark your calendar for the spring Fluorescent Lamp and Ballast Recycling Day, scheduled for May 4, 2017 from 9 am - 1 pm in the parking lot of 1215 N. State Street, Fairmont (formerly K-Mart). Not only will your disposal allow for the reuse of materials, but also will prevent the release of mercury into the environment.

Thank you in advance for your participation in this event.
