Fairgrounds Advisory Committee to Meet March 10

The first meeting of the Washington County Fairgrounds Advisory Committee will convene on Thursday, March 10, 2011, from 1:30 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. in Room 195 at the Service Center East, located at 3700 SW Murray Blvd in Beaverton, Oregon.

The Fairgrounds Advisory Committee is charged with making recommendations to the Board of County Commissioners on updating and implementing the Fairgrounds Master Plan, a fairgrounds capital projects plan and other major site-related initiatives.

The creation of the Fairgrounds Advisory Committee stems from an agreement adopted in 2010 by the Board of County Commissioners and the Fair Board. The Fair and Fairgrounds Agreement is designed to clarify and reinforce the partnership between the Fair Board and Board of Commissioners in support of the annual Fair event and fairgrounds property.

The Washington County Fair event is held each year at the 101-acre County Fair Complex property located at the intersection of NE Cornell Road and NE 34th Avenue in Hillsboro.
