From its inception, Fairplex has served as a regional economic engine. It’s part of the organization’s core mission. One of the initiatives of the Fairplex Strategic Plan, is to explore developing mixed-use lifestyle centers consisting of housing, office space, retail, entertainment and community spaces. One example is the Old Downtown La Verne Specific Plan. Fairplex has begun its efforts to develop an approximately 12-acre parcel within the campus, which sits within the La Verne city limits, as part of the Specific Plan. The mixed-use project is part of the Gold Line's Transit-Oriented Development.
