Much of the motivation came when a Garden City Councilor proposed some sort of urban renewal project that would put houses at the fair grounds, known these days by some as Expo Idaho–not to be confused with Nampa’s Idaho Center.
Since the horse racing venue has been nothing but trouble–both legal and financial–for the fair, the GUARDIAN has another idea. One we offered commishes years before the study was commissioned.
We have seen similar venues throughout the country. One in Jackson Missippi–at the fairgrounds–comes to mind along with another at the LBJ Ranch in Texas.
