Fairborn Development Corporation Reveals New Website
The Fairborn Development Corporation (FDC) is excited to reveal its new economic development website Fairborndevelopment.org. A complete redevelopment from the previous site, the new website has many upgrades that enhance the user experience while learning what the City of Fairborn has to offer.
The site offers a new robust property search engine that will help developers and business owners to find the best commercial real estate, office space, or acres of developable land that best suits their business needs. Information on local and regional services and partnerships to assist business owners regardless of business size or stage of development will also be available at Fairborndevelopment.org.
The FDC contracted with Catapult, a local start-up graphic arts firm in Dayton, to redevelop its site since many changes have occurred in the online forum. The new site adds digital marketing standards that have become prevalent in the area of economic development. It also allows more interactivity with users and promotes the Fairborn market while showcasing unique assets that make Fairborn a great location for business, family, and fun.
The City has many advantages that make it an attractive location to start, relocate, and continue business growth. Logistically, Fairborn is at the heart of the “Crossroads of America” with easy access to three major highways in the Dayton, OH region. With direct access to I-675, Fairborn is also less than 10 minutes away from both I-70 and I-75. Likewise, Fairborn sits right next to the state’s largest single-site employer, Wright-Patterson Air Force Base (WPAFB), and has the capacity to assist and provide space for those who do business with the base.
Fairborn is also home to Wright State University (WSU) with a student population of over 17,000, and to the National Center for Medical Readiness, often referred to as Calamityville. A unique 50+ acre site, Calamityville offers research, development, and testing capabilities for new technologies and products to be tested in realistic settings. Through partnerships with WSU, WPAFB, and other regional institutions, Calamityville provides space for training such as the annual Tech Warrior event where scientists and engineers at the Air Force Research Lab (AFRL) are able to test new technologies for the Air Force and other commercialization efforts in a realistic operational environment.
The new FDC site will provide users the most up-to-date information to find important data for those interested in business development in Fairborn. Welcome to our new FDC website!
