MOHAVE COUNTY, AZ (May 19, 2022) – Following direction by the Board of Supervisors at the Monday, May 16, 2022 Board of Supervisors meeting, an Ad Hoc Committee will be formed to determine a needs assessment for a new County Fairgrounds. (The focus of this committee will be on needs, not location at this time.)
The committee will consist of individuals who represent a specific group of current fairgrounds users, a representative from each of the five county districts, and other pertinent stakeholders. It’s expected that approximately 20 individuals will serve on this committee.
The committee will meet on Tuesday, June 7 at 3pm and again on Tuesday, June 21 to formulate a needs assessment for the proposed fairgrounds. Both meetings will be held in the county auditorium in the Administration Building located at 700 W. Beale St in Kingman. The public is invited to attend. The suggestions by the committee will be presented in a formal report to the Board of Supervisors at its July 18, 2022 meeting.
Meanwhile, a Public Input Form has been placed on the county website. A banner runs along the bottom of the page and individuals can click on it and go the Public Input form to fill out suggestions.
Also, individuals who would like their suggestions heard in a different manner, may call 928-444-8548 and leave a recorded suggestion on what they feel is needed at a new fairgrounds location. Answers will be limited to 45 seconds. Please keep in mind that any proposed fairgrounds location is not being discussed at this juncture. That will occur at a later date.
