Yes, changed alot. Some good, some bad.
Although it's technically in Beavercreek there's a large mall on Fairfield Rd.
Fulmer's is now closed for good just this month. Kroger's moved down the street to a new shopping center. There's lots of new housing on the outskirts of town, but that slowed down when the housing market took a hit.
Dr. Peterangelo passed away from brain cancer.
Foy still owns much of downtown, so that's the same.
When Dayton demolished a good bit of it's low-income housing, guess where the tenents went? Fairborn Apartments - the ones close to downtown near Mary Help - which had been sitting mostly empty due to needing renovation. Now there's a near full time cop patroling the apartments everyday.
Lots of meth-heads.
Fairborn went from mostly white to more diverse.
Movie theatre is not open. Collections are being taken to restore it but it'll cost a bundle due to asbestos.
Fairborn High School has s lot of fights. You don't hear too much about it but the students will tell you it happens almost daily.
Mary Help of Christains School is closed. The Luthern church on Maple Ave. has a private school for k-6th.
fairborn city Schools restructures to run as grade level schools. No more neighborhood schools. Black Lane is closed. We now have Primary for pre-3 in the Five Points building. Intermediate School is the old Palmer South 4-5th. Baker is 6-8th grade. So if you have kids of different ages you get to sit at the bus stop for a long time in the morning cause the buses run in shifts.

I was born in Fairborn in 1959. I graduated from
Fairborn Baker High School in 1978. I still live
in Fairborn and wouldn't think of living anywhere
else. I believe you get out of a community
what you put in and because I want Fairborn
to prosper and get beter I think it will. There
are nay sayers In every community but you
will never here me say anything bad about
Fairborn.
I believe if it was good enough for my Grandfather
and Dad Fairborn is good enough for me.
Downtown has very few empty buildings,
the City has a new Mayor, a new Chamber
of Commerce Director, a great City Manager
and a School System that is making a rebound.
We have a great Park system in Fairborn.
We have a community Easter Egg Hunt,downtown
Heratage days,the Airforce Marathon
a Downtown Block Party on the third of July,
the best and largest Fouth of July Parade in
the area. The Sweetcorn Festival, the Downtown
Car Show in September, the Halloween Parade
and The Christmas Holiday parade. I think that's
alot of nice things going on in Fairborn. All
you have to do is get involved and help.
To make Fairborn better than ever.
Maybe I'm just partial because I love this Town

I was back a few months ago. Paki's are taking over the business strip near the base. Fairborn has gotten seedier in the last decade.

Fairborn hasn't changed a bit. It is still the same little cliquish sh!t-hole of a town it has always been. Fairborn is a mean town. It may be small, but it is a mean cliquish town. There is a certain class of people that live there that are of the money class. They seem to do no wrong in the eyes of a lot of people. For instance a lot of people refuse to believe that a certain person, Brian LaPrairie, beat a little 2-year old girl to death just because he comes from money. No no their little home-slice couldn't possibly have done something so evil, it must have been somebody else. Lets forget about the fact that he plead guilty to the crime. That evil Prosecutor trick him into it.

I hate living here. It is a disgusting little Air Force town, full of Air Force pricks. I, for one, would like to see that base closed.

Not you again! If you don't like Fairborn then move. Oh thats right you can't right now, you are in jail for violating a stalking protection order "twice"! You know that's a "CRIME". At less we know for a while the streets of Fairborn will be a little safer for the young girls/women while you are sitting in jail. Maybe one of the Air Force pricks will like to teach you some manners. As for the base closing that will never happen, you couldn't be in a safer place right now.

Well, the town has been taken over by crack dealers, heroin dealers, theives and crack heads, I have lived here for almost my whole life. I personally am going to take my town back and try to get rid of the crime, violence, and druggies. The police force seems to be doing a crappy job of that. They know about it and do nothing.
It's friggin out of control.
