PROPOSITION C WILL FUND $50 MILLION FOR CRUCIAL REPAIRS TO EXISTING BUILDINGS AT FAIR PARK:
- Fair Park is a National Historic Landmark that has the largest collection of 1930s Art Deco exposition style architecture in the United States
- Located on 277 acres of beautifully landscaped grounds, Fair Park’s cultural, educational and sports facilities play host to more than 7 million visitors each year, including 2 million visitors who attend the annual State Fair of Texas
- A beloved, national treasure considered a “crown jewel of Texas,” Fair Park is in desperate need of basic repairs and renovations to its existing buildings, most of which are at least 81 years old
- Repairs will be made to the Hall of State, African-American Museum, Aquarium Annex, Texas Discovery Gardens, Music Hall, Tower Building, Coliseum, Centennial Building, Food and Fiber Building, Pan American Complex and Magnolia Lounge
- These repairs are necessary to prevent further deterioration caused by leaky roofs, cracked facades and other issues found in aging structures
- NOTE: These repairs must be conducted by the City regardless of whether a non-profit organization assumes operational control over Fair Park.
