Fairfield County is located in the southwestern corner of the U.S. state of Connecticut. Its population according to the 2000 census was 882,567, but a 2006 survey put the population at 905,000. It is the most populous county in the State of Connecticut.
The towns in Fairfield County bordering Long Island Sound are sometimes referred to as The Gold Coast.
The county’s largest cities are Bridgeport, Stamford, Danbury, and Norwalk. Together these cities contain about 420,000 people – almost half the population of the county.
As is the case with all eight of Connecticut’s counties, there is no county government, and no county seat. In Connecticut, towns are responsible for all local government activities, including fire and rescue, snow removal and schools. In a few cases, neighboring towns will share certain resources.
