Improvements to fairgrounds on agenda

January 9, 2008


A capital improvement plan for the Douglas County 4-H Fairgrounds will be discussed during the County Commission meeting tonight.

Since June, a fairgrounds committee has been studying short-term and long-term improvements needed at the fairgrounds.

Some of the committee's recommendations include renovating kitchen space in Building 21 to make it an indoor and outdoor concession stand; an open pavilion on the eastern side of the community building; a campground with showers and restrooms; and an outdoor amphitheater.

Also needed are improvements to signage, lighting, drainage and traffic patterns.

Commissioners meet at 6:35 p.m. on the second floor of the courthouse, 1100 Mass.

Will this pay for itself? If enough rock concerts are booked it surely will.

Phase 1 is a concession stand paid for with insurance funds from fire in old concession stand, 9-10 yrs ago. The money the kids raise has been down allmost 1/2 since.
