Elbert County Fairgrounds Master Plan

Client – Elbert County

Enertia Consulting Group | Elbert County Fairgrounds Master PlanThe Master Plan evolved through a process of discovery, analysis and planning. Enertia’s research was aided by Fairground and other County personnel, tours of other Front Range fairgrounds, and public meetings. This process was designed to establish an understanding of existing conditions, constraints, preferences and opportunities leading to formation of a phased land use and facility improvement scenario. The public participation process facilitated development of the following key goals for the Plan:

  • Creating a Fairgrounds environment that is visually pleasing, accessible and welcoming
  • Identifying the Elbert County Fairgrounds niche
  • Expanding the versatility and overall use of the Fairgrounds for both existing and potential users
  • Creating a year round destination that is a focal point within Elbert County and Kiowa
  • Identifying necessary and desired capital improvements and developing a phased approach for implementing improvements
  • Quantifying capital improvement costs for planned improvements
  • Identifying funding mechanisms for capital improvements.

Enertia started the master planning process in December 2011 and provided a draft plan for review and public comment in April 2012. It’s anticipated that the Fairgrounds Master Plan will be endorsed by the Elbert County Commissioners in May 2012.
