We're finally looking to buy a house, and are hoping someone here might know of a really special one (ideally near the river or some nice trees). We're pretty open in terms of timing and size - one-family, or one-family with an in-law apartment for my dad, or two-family. We… Continue

Since I could not stay for the entire meeting, I wanted to add my suggestion for a new use of the Strong School.
Despite the diversity of the neighborhood on both sides of the river, we don't have the variety of retail that I personally would like to see. There used to be a lot of good stores on both sides and both ends of the Bridge, but some were lost to fire and some to development. Fair Haven has a lot of retail, but Fair Haven Heights does not.

Hello Fair Haven Community,
I am looking for occasional help watching my children, who are 11 and 8. I live on Clifton Street, a block from the canoe launch. Our sitters have all moved on to college, so I am hoping to find someone new.
