RFP San Juan County Fairgrounds Master Plan Update
Project Description: The Parks, Recreation and Fair Department intends to contract with a professional consultant firm to assist with the San Juan County Fairgrounds Master Plan update. The current plan was adopted in 2012.
San Juan County Fairgrounds is a multipurpose property located just south of the Town of Friday Harbor on San Juan Island in Washington State. In addition to the annual county fair, the property is actively used year ‘round for community and special events, theatre, sports programming, camping, 4H, and as a public open space. The property is a historically significant cultural landscape that includes multiple built facilities, with some buildings between 75 & 100 years old. Detailed information on the fairgrounds and fair are located at
The completed master plan update should include a comprehensive analysis of the fairgrounds programs and facilities and include a long-term vision for sustainability. Additionally, an analysis of the fairgrounds economic position within the community, the relevance of historic resources and sense of place, a 6 year capital improvement plan and 20 year capital forecast will be incorporated. The planning process will contain an innovative citizen involvement strategy so that SJC citizens’ ideas, concerns and expressions of preference are integrated into statements of how the fairgrounds should be developed, what should be preserved, what programming should accomplish, what facilities and service levels are needed, and how publicly funded improvements should support these objectives.
The plan update will look 20 years into the future. However, the visions and values expressed in this completed plan will likely extend beyond the 20 year planning horizon to future generations. The following question will be answered within the new plan: What is the community’s vision for a sustainable county fairgrounds? The County’s intent is to give the community a chance to imagine what role the fairgrounds can play in supporting a sustainable high quality of life and strong sense of community.
San Juan County solicits proposals from consulting firms with expertise in facility master planning, civil engineering, landscape architecture, historic preservation, and cultural landscapes evaluation, economic development and effective citizen engagement.
