Fair Master Plan Reboot

At the May meeting of the 22nd District Agricultural Association Board of Directors, the board tasked Southwest Strategies with implementing a public outreach program to help shape the Master Plan under development. The adopted resolution stated (in part):


“The District’s Master Site Plan initiative must be guided by an extensive community input process. This input process should encompass solicitation of opinions from a broad range of parties. These parties include, but are not limited to, San Diego County Fair and other event attendees and participants; the District’s neighbors; community thought leaders; elected officials; regional planning and industry organizations; and environmental advocates.”
