East Stacy Road Design

The Town of Fairview will be making improvements to Stacy Road, from the entrance of the Thompson Springs subdivision all the way to Orr Road. This portion of Stacy Road will have the asphalt removed and will be reconstructed with concrete. This reconstruction will additionally allow an opportunity for pedestrian traffic. As such, the existing bike lane and sidewalk along Stacy will be extended all the way to Orr Road.

Waterline Additions

With more development coming in East Fairview, the Town has been able to extend its water distribution system. The Town is now able to serve some of the Milligan water customers. Water rates will go down for those who were once on Milligan, because Fairview charges less than Milligan.

Stacy Road Construction Update

The Stacy Road widening project saw several delays throughout fall due to utility relocations that took longer than expected. The clearing and roadbed preparation for the two new lanes on the North side is commencing. Underground storm drains are being extended in preparation for the first two of the future four, concrete lanes. The $20 million Stacy Road project is being funded jointly by TxDOT, Collin County, State Highway 121 Regional Toll Revenue and the Town of Fairview. If you wish to receive regular updates on the construction, please visit to sign up for email and/or text message alerts.

The Town of Fairview is a member of the National Flood Insurance Program.

This means that anyone in Fairview can purchase low cost flood insurance from FEMA, regardless if your home is located in the flood plain.

  • Under no circumstances should fill be hauled into the 100 year flood plain.
  • No new structures should be built or installed within the 100 year flood plain.
  • All existing structures within the 100 year flood plain should be insured for flood damage.
  • Insurance companies or mortgage lenders may require flood insurance, even if your home is not in the flood plain. It’s up to you to provide documentation from FEMA that your home or structure has been removed from the flood plain if they ask. Please contact the engineering department if you need assistance.
  • All development within the 100 year flood plain must be permitted by the engineering department.
  • Flooding in and around creeks increase over time due to upstream development and convergence with other streams. For example, Sloan Creek floods at the east end due to Wilson Creek flooding from upstream development in McKinney.
  • New flood maps released in 2009 took some homes out of the 100 year flood plain and put others within the flood plain. Please contact the engineering department to determine if your home has changed.
