Mission Statement

Fisherville Area Neighborhood Association (FANA) is a non-profit association of residents and owners in the greater Fisherville area organized to promote our interests, represent our views with government agencies, and preserve the rural character and natural resources of our area.

Goals

We seek to ensure that any new development in the Fisherville area meets reasonable guidelines:

  • All new development plans must incorporate relevant public comment and input to ensure that these plans are not overly disruptive to life in Fisherville.
  • We encourage the retention of farmland or development of large-acreage lots, but acknowledge the pre-existing prevalence of R-4 zoning in the area.
  • Development must include sufficient improvements to infrastructure and roads that provide our residents safe, efficient ingress and egress.
  • New sewer and septic systems must meet current environmental regulations and have safeguards against dumping sewage in our streams and creeks.
  • New development should include lighting plans that preserve our dark skies at night.
  • New developments should be designed to preserve open space, mature trees, creeks, and wildlife habitat in order to retain the natural beauty of the area.
  • We support development of an area-wide “Overlay District” for the greater Fisherville area which would include reasonable guidelines for future development, but would not affect existing subdivisions or properties.

About Us

  • In 2009 there were several public meetings about proposed development in our area, and many of us were concerned about the plans.
  • Hundreds of people expressed interest in forming some kind of association to help represent Fisherville.
  • After the large meeting 2009, a smaller group of people got together and formed a non-profit corporation: Fisherville Area Neighborhood Association, Inc. (FANA).
  • The volunteer FANA board is elected annually at our September public meeting, and has representatives from most of the Homeowner's Associations in the area, as well as several "at large" members. This group meets at least quarterly, and subcommittees stay involved regularly with Metro Planning, MSD, KY Highway dept, Metro Council, 21st Century Parks and other community organizations.
  • Membership in FANA is open to any Fisherville area resident or property owner or business. The membership dues are: $15/year for an individual or $25/year for a corporation or household, and all dues paying members can vote for the board annually.
  • We use the funds raised to:
    • Communicate about Fisherville issues related to zoning, development, traffic, wastewater and other items of interest to the members.
    • Pay a lawyer to represent us at public hearings, zoning hearings, etc. if necessary.
    • Communicate with local media about these issues, and let our voices be heard from Fisherville.
