County fair at a new site?
The Douglas County Fair at a new location?
Believe it or not, it could very well happen.
But not any time soon.
The group that operates the fair, the Douglas County Agricultural Association, has a lease with the city of Alexandria to use the city-owned fairgrounds property.
The lease is set to expire in 2035.
The association has approached the city about the possibility of extending the lease but the council isn't interested in doing so.
