City of Fairview Heights

It is with great pride that I extend to everyone a heartfelt welcome to the City of Fairview Heights, Southwestern Illinois’ “Crossroads of Prosperity."

As you go through this profile of our fine city, you will find out why we are well known as a progressive leader in the region. Just a few minutes from Downtown St. Louis, Scott Air Force Base, and a number of area attractions, Fairview Heights is the hub for retail activity, commerce, tourism, and quality living.

Owners of property in our city enjoy the advantage of not having to pay any municipal real estate tax; as our retail base is so broad, it provides sufficient funds to operate a first-class municipality with a full range of services for all ages.

Fountains at Fairview

Having grown from a handful of homes and lots of farmland in the 1960s to the modern community we are today, Fairview Heights is continuing to move ahead — as exemplified by the late 1998 opening of the U.S. Ice Sports Complex. Other amenities in our city, such as Stonewolf Golf Course, designed by Jack Nicklaus, and our creative playground known as the Recreation Station, are considered obvious indicators of our forward thinking attitude. Our newest additions to the city are the MetroLink Station, which is up and running; and the opening of the Fountains at Fairview, a major conference center development just north of Interstate 64 on Illinois Route 159.

Our vast array of choices in shopping, dining, retail space, sites for business, housing stock, recreation, entertainment, and education truly entitle Fairview Heights to proclaim, “We’ve Got It All.” We encourage you to see for yourself.
