Shelby County Fair Grounds
In January 2007 the Community Design Center led a design charrette for the the Shelby County Fairgrounds near Sidney Ohio. The CDC, working with Ohio Urban University Program partner Wright State Center for Urban and Public Affairs, provided design and economic development technical assistance to the Shelby County Chamber of Commerce and county fair planning group to determine the feasibility and visioning for relocating the County Fair to a new 66 acre site adjacent to I-75. Design work was provided by architecture and planning student staff of the CDC under the direction of Frank Russell and Architect Tony Costello of Ball State University.
