Welcome to Fairview!

We are located in southern Kenton County, primarily along state route 177. The city was incorporated in 1957 to avoid annexation by Covington. Our city’s history is tied to the adjacent railroad, and the name “Fairview” was suggested by one of our residents.

The city of Fairview is zoned agricultural and has a population of under 200. We operate with a mayor/commissioner form of government. The city meeting is held at the city building the second Tuesday of every month at 6:00 pm. We meet at the city building (8349 Decoursey Pike) in the heart of Fairview on Route 177.

All are welcome to attend the monthly city meetings! Meetings have resumed with a new start time of 6PM. Masks are no longer required, but encouraged if you are unvaccinated.

The city has installed a new sign in front of the city building. We hope to share announcements and other messages of interest to our residents. Please be patient as we work to get the sign adjusted with the most pleasing effects and colors.

The city honored author, Ellen Everman, at our March meeting with a display of her book, Pink Dice. Ellen resided in Fairview and mentioned our city in her book! For more information on Ellen's book, visit

Also, please congratulate Fairview resident, Paula Rust. She was honored with the 21-22 Ky. Education Support Staff Professional Award on Feb. 22.​
