Eddie Hondal’s letter, Let’s get it done, begs the question of why the Youth Fair is ever likely to be displaced by FIU. The Fair has an iron-clad contract with the county that dictates that the Fair can only be displaced if a comparable or better location acceptable to the Fair is found.
No such location exists. Political will and the manipulation of the electorate will not create such a site. Simply put, the Fair will stay where it is performing a valuable and indispensable role in the community.
FIU can make better use of the vast landholdings it already has.
