$252,369 Contract for a Master Site Plan Process Has Unmet Needs & Unanswered Questions
Proposed Convention and Expo Building Blocks in Centennial Farm

Does the Fairgrounds Need Public Approval for Construction Projects or Bond Financing?

Starburst Question (2)

No. The OC Fairgrounds is able to make changes to their property without involving the Public, who own the OC Fairgrounds. As a State Agency, the OC Fairgrounds is not subject to the same planning and permitting processes which the Anaheim Convention Center and Resort Area are subject to. The OC Fairgrounds is considering issuing bonds, using tax increment based financing, or other public financing tools to enact the Master Site Plan. As a State Agency, the OC Fairgrounds is not required to get public approval for planning, building, financing, or building aside from the CEQA process. The OC Fairgrounds does not have the same noticing or hearing requirements for planning and permitting as cities have, which means projects can be undertaken without telling the Public. These actions can be taken at OC Fair Board meetings held once a month at 9 AM on Thursdays.
