Berlin Harbor is the newest city in Fairview. Berlin Harbor is currently a bedroom community, with residents commuting to Mountainview Lakes and Wildwood Island for jobs. Berlin Harbor occupies the western half of a peninsula and the northeast part of Bluewater Island in northern Fairview. The built-up section of Berlin Harbor occupies the southern part of the peninsula with a bridge to Bluewater Island, still undeveloped. The mayor of Berlin Harbor is Jerry Bell.
Above is the southeast corner of Berlin Harbor, where the city began. Berlin Harbor began at the corner because of the proximity to the industrial districts of Mountainview Lakes and Wildwood Island. A railroad crossing and the 640 freeway was already in place, providing convenient transportation to the neighbors. A few commercial businesses has appeared along the city border and by the 640 interchange.
Above, a section of Berlin Harbor north of the railroad crossing. Berlin Harbor's growth so far has been along the border with Mountainview Lakes. Part of the Fairview and Northern Railroad tracks have been elevated to reduce the number of grade crossings through town.
Above, the neighborhood on Gump Mountain. Gump Mountain is situated to the northwest of the previous picture, providing a challenge to developers. The developers have answered the challenge and Berlin Harbor's newest neighborhood is appearing on the mountain.
Bluewater Channel and the Bluewater Channel Bridge. Bluewater Channel separates Bluewater Island from the mainland. The Bluewater Channel Bridge carries the 640 Freeway across the channel but ends as soon as it reaches the island. Development has yet to reach the island.
This completes the tour of the cities of Fairview. While Fairview is platted for ten cities, the site of the tenth city, on Fairview's northwest corner, is currently unincorporated and unnamed. An announcement will be made when the city is incorporated. This journal will now track the progress of Fairview and its cities.
