Celebrating the beginning of a new Event Center


   Westside community members gathered this week to celebrate the groundbreaking of a new Event Center at the Washington County Fair Complex, across from the Hillsboro Airport.
   With event space at a premium on the Westside, this future 89,000-square-foot facility is a welcome sight to many. 

   "By working together with the City of Hillsboro, the Washington County Visitors Association, local chambers of commerce, and their member businesses, we begin building an Event Center that will serve the needs of our growing county, our diverse business community, sporting events, and their devoted fans, while also serving and promoting our rich agricultural heritage," said Washington County Board Chair Andy Duyck. 
   The new center is designed to accommodate the needs of a wide range of community activities, while continuing to support and enhance the annual Washington County Fair in Hillsboro.
   Partners on the project include the City of Hillsboro, Dowl, LRS Architects, Swinerton, Washington County, and Washington County Visitors Association - all are WEA members.
   The new center is expected to be completed in the fall of 2020.
