Fairfield brings annexation request to LAFCO

By From page A1 | October 14, 2012

FAIRFIELD — Fairfield will bring its request to annex 1,244 acres for the Canon Station portion of its train station community to the Local Agency Formation Commission on Monday.

The meeting begins at 10 a.m. at the county Government Center Board of Supervisors chamber, 675 Texas St. LAFCO must approve the annexation before it can go through.

Canon Station is part of Fairfield’s planned train station community east of Peabody Road near Travis Air Force Base. The community is to include a train station, more than 6,000 homes, a 50-acre park, a Main Street-style business area and industry. City officials have said development could take place there over the coming 20 years.

The proposed Canon Station annexation doesn’t include what Fairfield calls the “core” train station area with existing rural businesses. Fairfield officials have said a request to annex this 1,044-acre area could go to LAFCO in spring 2013.

Property owners within the proposed Canon Station annexation includes the Canon Station group, Fairfield and the Solano County Water Agency, according to a LAFCO report.
