No new land for FIU

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.
