FAIRFIELD - One of the biggest development undertakings since the decision to annex Cordelia Villages continues to roll along and will return to the Fairfield City Council on Tuesday.

The so-called 'Train Station Plan' project encompasses about 4.1 square miles or 2,970 acres. Homes, parks, businesses and industry are being studied for the project going before the council. After 160 years of growth, the entirety of Suisun City is also about 4.1 square miles.

Much of the land in the project along Vanden Road is envisioned to be permanent open space or residential parks, but that still leaves space for nearly 7,000 homes. The council will decide tonight whether to launch an intensive study of the project's possible impacts, a step that must come before final approval.
