COUNTY: Get creative

Print Article

Every time I see the topic of the county moving over to the fairgrounds to “consolidate operations,” I can spit nails. The next time the urge comes over them, I suggest the commissioners take a look at the numerous feasibility studies conducted over that time to see that it simply is not feasible to do so. The fairgrounds cannot be replicated without an enormous price tag. Plain and simple. So drop it already!

Perhaps the commissioners can look a couple of miles up the street to the north to Silver Lake Mall. Nearly half of it sits empty. The infrastructure is there, parking is abundant, and it is centrally located between the two main thoroughfares. It is something to strongly consider.

Stop coveting that 83 acres called the fairgrounds, commissioners. Think outside of the box for once.
