The Town of Fairfax is an environmentally conscious community situated in the heart of central Marin County and is considered the most progressive of Marin's 11 incorporated cities.
The Town has ordinances preventing chain stores; take-out Styrofoam food packaging and plastic bags and is in the process of updating its General Plan with a goal of retaining its small town character. The Art Deco era movie theater is the centerpiece of a vibrant nightlife with top-notch restaurants and well-known clubs with venues for jazz and other popular music.
The population is quite diverse including a large "green" political base, the largest in the San Francisco Bay Area. Fairfax is a mountain biking and hiking Mecca because it is surrounded by committed open space and a nature preserve. The Town's sylvan setting in the forested hills and its Mediterranean climate encourage outdoor activities year-round.
