Fair Complex Planning

Friendship Square ApproachIt is great to see construction underway on the Event Center and exciting that so much more potential exists for the Fair Complex. Accordingly, an update of the 2008 Master Plan focused on the western portion of the Fair Complex site has begun. This new planning emphasizes multi-use improvements to benefit county residents and visitors year-round, while maintaining the long-term success of the County Fair and other current uses. It is being guided by the Fairgrounds Advisory Committee (FAC) which will make recommendations to
the Board of Commissioners. 


Master Plan Update - What's New?

It’s your turn! Last year, more than 3800 county residents shared their aspirations for the Fair Complex. A key strategy that emerged from that input is the proposed construction of a phased multi-use facility that can host traditional fair functions and a wide range of other functions year-round. Is this the right direction for the Fair Complex? Share your thoughts by completing the Master Plan Survey by May 31st. Thank you!

Keeping It Real

When complete, the new Fair Complex Master Plan will set a big vision for the future, which is great. However, there is a need to steward existing facilities to meet current need with existing resources. That is why the Master Plan is broken into three phases that make incremental improvements to the Fair Complex over time.

Fairgrounds Advisory Committee

The Board of County Commissioners created the nine-member Fairgrounds Advisory Committee (FAC) in the fall of 2010 to provide advice and counsel to the Board of Commissioners on the Fairgrounds Master Plan, Fairgrounds Capital Projects Plan and other major site-related initiatives. The Fair Board President (or designee) represents the Fair Board on the committee. Other members of the FAC represent various countywide stakeholders in the success of the Fair event and use of the fairgrounds property.

FAC meetings begin at 2 p.m. in the Cloverleaf Building at the Fair Complex. Upcoming meetings:

  • May 22, 2019
  • June 12, 2019
