The Facebook Group 'What Fairmont Needs Is..." has grown over the past year.

It has nearly 5,000 members offering suggestions on how to improve Fairmont.

The idea has even caught on in other communities, like Grafton.

The group plans to hold a meet-and-greet between government officials and community members to open up communication between the groups.

It will be held March 28 at 6 p.m., at the Barrackville Community Building.
