Fairview Point - October 2021
Fairview Public Safety Survey 2021
MCSO has as its mission statement, “Exemplary service for a safe, livable community.” We take that mission very seriously. To that end, the Fairview City Council with guidance from the Fairview Public Safety Advisory Committee and assistance from MCSO developed a customer survey for the residents of Fairview to complete online. We are hopeful that this survey will guide us with information about residents’ feelings of livability, concerns about crime, and overall how we are doing in serving the community. Please take a few minutes to log on to the following link to take the survey: https://forms.office.com/g/WsDQvKmJY7.
If you are unable to access the internet, a hard copy of the survey will be available at City Hall. The survey will remain online through October 29th. The data from the survey will be used by MCSO and the City of Fairview to guide our services into the future to ensure we are meeting the community’s needs. Thank you in advance for taking the time to assist us with this survey.
Community Mobile Mural
On Friday, September 17th, during the opening of the new Wood Village City Hall, PlayEast unveiled its Community Mobile Mural project. This project was made possible through Metro’s Community Placemaking Grant. The objectives of the Metro Grant are Placemaking, Equity, Partnerships, and Leadership. PlayEast would like to recognize the Natural Leader (Lideres Naturales) community group for their hard work and dedication to this project. This group is made up of Fairview and Wood Village Latinx community members. We would also like to thank Metropolitan Family Servers (MFS) and Mario De Leon for helping bring this project to life with his beautiful art work.

Community Need Surveys
We Want to Hear From You!
The City of Fairview has received funding from the federal government as part of the American Rescue Plan Act’s State and Local Fiscal Recovery Fund program and is interested in using a portion of these resources to aid the local community in its continued recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic.
The first step in this process is to identify community need where it exists. The city has developed two surveys, one for local business owners and another for the broader community, in order to hear directly from the Fairview community in this regard. If you would like to have your voice heard by the city government or need help accessing existing services, please visit fairvieworegon.gov/541/Community-Needs-Survey or pick up a paper copy of the surveys at City Hall.

Monthly Water Conservation Tips - October
- Small changes at the sink add up. Washing your hands for 20 seconds is critical—but doing it with the faucet on wastes a lot of water. Same goes for brushing your teeth. Turn off the faucet while you’re scrubbing and you can save hundreds of gallons of water a year.
- Use a broom or rake instead of a hose to clean debris from hardscaping. It can be tempting to hose down your sideway, patio, or driveway—but save the water and use a broom instead.
