Draft Buildout Report for the Town of Fairhaven, MAAs part of their effort to project future wastewater facility capacity needs, the Fairhaven Department of Public Works requested that the Buzzards Bay NEP prepare a buildout analysis for the town of Fairhaven. On this page we have links to the 2010 draft report, GIS files, and some additional maps that show potential buildout on each parcel.

Based on the BBNEP's analysis, and as summarized in the table above, the Town of Fairhaven has the potential for an estimated 3,784 additional units to be built under existing zoning rules. The calculations took into account wetlands on each parcel using the state conservancy program wetland maps which show only the minimum extent of wetlands.
Read the draft Fairhaven 2010 Buildout Report for the results and an explanation of the methodology. The GIS coverage showing the number of buildable units on Town of Fairhaven parcels is contained in this zipped shapefile fairhaven_buildout_jun2010.zip (protected open space files and certain municipal files are not included in this coverage).

The draft report used a 2009 protected open space coverage. The new maps on this page used a September 2011 open space coverage. The final report will use the most recent protected open space data available. The open space coverage used on the new maps above is available at our GIS data download page.
