A meeting has been scheduled at 7 p.m. on Wednesday, March 26 so South Whidbey residents can comment on the proposed redevelopment of the Fairgrounds in Langley. A plan has been presented that will reportedly call for taking down most of the fair buildings and constructing an event center. Sandey Brandon, fair manager, said the meeting will be hosted by Fred McCarthy, Helen Price Johnson and Curt Gordon. It will be held in the Coffman (4-H)  Building on the Fairgrounds. The Fairgrounds currently provide space for many different artists’ groups to meet and to show their work.

A copy of the entire “Strategic Plan,” prepared by Landerman-Moore Associates of Anacortes and LRS Architects of Portland, can be found on the website:

Local islanders are urging a large attendance to discuss this issue. “This is very important for the future of the Fair,” they stated, “that as many people as possible come and be heard.”
