The Fairfax Resident Council

Residents at The Fairfax are encouraged to get involved and meet their neighbors. Sixteen residents serve on the elected Resident Council, meeting to discuss a variety of community concerns and activities. Specific areas of Council interest include income, expenditures and other financial matters as they apply to The Fairfax community.
