Lake County Fairgrounds Considers Renovations

LAKEVIEW — The Lake County Fairgrounds may soon see a change in facilities, layout and appearance following completion of a master plan funded, in part, through a recently acquired grant.

With the assistance of South Central Oregon Economic Development District (SCOEDD), a $50,000 Local Economic Opportunity Fund Program grant was approved through Business Oregon. Its purpose will be to fund a two-phase assessment for development of a master plan for immediate facilities needs, maintenance and possible redesign.
