Canadian County officials voted Monday to spend $1.25 million to purchase 50 acres of land that will be developed into a new fairgrounds complex.
The property, owned by Stephen Jensen, is located near the intersection of Jensen Road and Alfadale Road just outside of El Reno.
The decision followed a 1 hour, 15 minute executive session of the county’s Public Facilities Authority.
The county will offer to pay $25,000 per acre for the 50 acres with an option to purchase additional property at the same price. The purchase will be owner financed.
