Fairmont to remain a "Bedroom Community"?

The "Powers-in-Charge" want Fairmont to remain a "Bedroom Community", a city where citizens can work in neighboring Harrison and Monongalia counties and spend their wages in Morgantown, Bridgeport and Clarksburg retail stores while returning to a safe, blistful existence in the "Friendly City". The reason: Growth means more crime! Such a simple concept, eh? Just let those "other communities" collect that revenue to provide more services to their citizens while we have nothing but a comfortable sleep in our bedroom community!

I never knew living in Fairmont was safe or blissful.

If "Bedroom Community" is code for all the prostitution and drug deals that go on in cheap motels, then Fairmont is a top notch "Bedroom Community".

Me either. I lived there briefly as a teenager and I visited relatives there frequently as a kid. It sure wasn't safe or blissful then. My relatives and their neighbors had their homes broken into many times and I have a friend who got raped there back in 2000. I wouldn't live there if somebody paid me to.

I think Marion County, in general, is a bedroom community.
A title that I'm comfortable with.
I DO think the town of Fairmont can & should be cleaned up but I think that expecting Fairmont to turn into the next Morgantown or Clarksburg is a bit nieave. That's a lot to be expected in such a concentrated area without the population to sustain it.

Fairmont has a bigger population than Clarksburg, so I think we could do it.
