Will Fairfield Keep Promise To Business Investors?

The city of Fairfield promised investors purchasing commercial businesses along West Texas Street that Fairfield would follow up with redeveloping the city's main gateway.  But the money disappeared long before the recession hit. 

Meanwhile the Solano County did their part and built the wonderful new county capital building.  It was meant to be the main attraction for drivers going through West Texas Street.

Today there's an interested construction company buyer wishing to purchase an important building in downtown Fairfield. The three-year old Art Explosion - an art gallery and studio space there was using it until a buyer was found.

The buyer wants to tap into all the traffic coming through West Texas Street leading into the new Solano County capital building.  The key concern is will Fairfield city keep it's promise to redevelop the city's main gateway in 2000?

Where did the money for fixing West Texas Street go before the recession hit? More people will spend money in downtown Fairfield, creating more job openings when the city follows through its promise to quickly redevelop the street. Construction was to start in 2000 or so. It's a win-win for everyone. There is much more on this interesting story in this blogs other articles at
