THE Gateway to the Pacific and West coast living
The Community - Fairfield, CA
Fairfield is a vibrant and diverse community with respect for its
heritage and a vision for the future. Fairfield combines a prime
commercial real estate location, room for growing businesses, and a
large and talented work force. Affordable housing, good schools and
close proximity to many of the San Francisco Bay Area's
world-famous destinations make Fairfield attractive for employers
and workers. It is generally considered the midpoint between the
cities of San Francisco and Sacramento, approximately 36 miles from
the city center of both cities, approximately 31 miles from the
city center of Oakland, less than 19 miles from Napa Valley, 16
miles from the Carquinez Bridge, and 14 miles from the Benicia
Bridge. It is located in the North-eastern part of the Bay Area.
Fairfield was founded in 1856 by clippership captain Robert H.
Waterman, and named after his former hometown of Fairfield,
Connecticut. It is the home of Travis Air Force Base and the
headquarters of Jelly Belly. With a population of 108,321 at the
2010 census, it is slightly smaller in population than Vallejo.
Travis Air Force Base
Situated in the San Francisco Bay Area and known as the "Gateway to
the Pacific ", Travis Air Force Base handles more cargo and
passenger traffic through its airport than any other military air
terminal in the United States. Today, Travis AFB includes
approximately 7,260 active USAF military personnel, 4,250 Air Force
Reserve personnel and 3,770 civilians. Travis AFB has a major
impact on the community as a number of military families and
retirees have chosen to make Fairfield their permanent home. Travis
AFB is the largest employer in the City and Solano County as well,
and the massive Travis workforce has a local economic impact of
more than $1 billion annually. The Base also contributes a large
number of highly skilled people to the local labor pool. The base
is also host to David Grant USAF Medical Center, a 265-bed, $200
million Air Force teaching hospital, which serves both in-service
and retired military personnel.
