Fort Fairfield Celebrations of Lights

Fort Fairfield Quality of Place Council Encourages Enlightenment in Community During Celebration of Lights!

(Fort Fairfield) – The Fort Fairfield Quality of Place Council is seeking to spark some excitement in the community for the Holidays with an electrifying new project – the Fort Fairfield Celebration of Lights!  This new, community-wide initiative is designed to bring more light to some of the darkest days of the year by encouraging businesses and homeowners to create a more festive atmosphere in town by decorating their storefronts and homes.

“We’ve been meeting with business and community leaders for months now to refine our plans to bring more buzz to Main Street,” explained Phil Christensen, President of the Quality of Place Council.  “We’ve been drawing up plans to illuminate some areas downtown and working with business owners to help incentivize them to join in the fun.  The response has been terrific, and despite some challenges with this early winter weather, we are excited to put the next phase of the plan into action.”

Over the past few weeks, the Fort Fairfield Quality of Place Council has allocated several thousand dollars to replace some of the decorations that were destroyed when the Community Bandstand collapsed and to invest in additional lights to be used on a variety of downtown businesses and landmarks.  Those lights will be on nightly for all to enjoy from December 2nd until January 2nd from 4 to 10pm.  Now, the Council is encouraging property owners to join in the fun.

Any address is Fort Fairfield is eligible to participate in the Celebration of Lights Home Decorating Competition.  A top-secret panel of judges will be traveling throughout the community from 5 to 10pm on Saturday December 15th to take in the sights (and hopefully some sounds!) of participating homes to select the top three holiday light displays.  Those homeowners will win valuable gift cards and prizes from a variety of local businesses.  To register, all homeowners have to do is email ffqualityplace@yahoo.com with their name, address and phone number by midnight December 14th.  Not computer savvy?  Feel free and contact Tim Goff at 939-2440 and provide that same info and you'll be entered to win.  

“This is a great chance for the young, and the young at heart, to enjoy a tradition that many members of the Council fondly recall – driving through neighborhoods and oohing and aahing at the dazzling lights glistening on a blanket of fresh fallen snow,” added Christensen.  “It is our hope that by encouraging our residents to create some beautiful displays, we can create new traditions for everyone to enjoy.”

For more information on the program, or to get involved, please contact Phil Christensen at 227-1644 or email ffqualityplace@yahoo.com

After an absence of several years, the Fort Fairfield Public Works Department and the Fort Fairfield Quality of Place Council have teamed together to help property owners clean-up their yards and homes by disposing of unwanted items.  During the week of May 18th, Public Works crews will collect and dispose of brush and yard waste, old furniture and mattresses, and large appliances and metal items that are left at the roadside.  Crews WILL NOT take glass, hazardous materials, paints, electronics or tires.

“We understand that many home and business owners have items they no longer want that are cluttering up their yards and homes,” stated Public Works Director, George Watson.  “We want to help them with their spring clean-up by hauling away those unwanted items, but it is vitally important that people work with us to make this process go smoothly.”

“We will ONLY be coming by people’s homes on the date their street is listed (see below).  We will be leaving behind any materials we deem unacceptable and it will be up to the property owner to dispose of those items properly,” explained Watson.  “This program went away years ago because people abused it or didn’t pay close attention to the date , and will go away again if people do not assist us in this clean-up effort.  We are trying this again because we believe it is a valuable service to residents, but the costs and aggravation mount quickly if we have to retrace our steps or chase piles of trash for weeks on end.”

It is up to the property owner to bring their unwanted items to the end of their driveway or to the roadside the night before pick-up is scheduled on their street.  Crews will then gather the waste materials and recycle or dispose of them properly.  Public Works crews will leave notes behind explaining why items have been rejected or left behind.

“We understand not everyone has a pick-up to haul things to the landfill,” said Kim Jones, president of the Quality of Place Council.  “This is just one more way we can help beautify the community and provide a valuable service for residents that improves all of our properties.  With everyone working together and following the rules, we can all take full advantage of this fantastic opportunity to make our neighborhoods attractive places to live and visit.”

Residents are strongly encouraged to contact the Town Office at 472-3800 if they have questions about the program.
