Josephine County, Ore. — The Josephine County Fairgrounds could soon have a new look. According to fairgrounds administration, it’s been awarded grants from Grants Pass rotary clubs worth around $200,000. That money will be spread out between 2018 and 2020. It will go towards improvement projects, including covering the arena.
“It’s a well-used piece of land on this fairgrounds. It’s actually one of the most used on the fairgrounds, just in a little different way that people think about,” said Mary Groves, grants writer.
The arena project will cost around $500,000 and will take about two years to complete. If all goes as planned, construction could start within the next couple months.
