On December 9, 2021, the Intergovernmental Agency Board accepted the updated Fairgrounds Market Feasibility Report, which recommended the continued operations of the Fairgrounds at its current location and that targeted improvements be identified through a master plan process. The Report includes a market analysis that analyzes current Fairground facility offerings; an economic impact analysis that assesses the broader community impact of activities held at the Fairgrounds, and a site evaluation analysis that considers the feasibility of alternative sites should the Fairgrounds move from its existing location. The Agency has contracted with a firm currently under a continuing services contract with Blueprint to conduct a master plan process that would make recommendations for targeted improvements to the North Florida Fairgrounds’ operations and potentially redevelop portions of the property.
Current Status: The final master plan is anticipated to be complete in December 2022.
