Project: Fairground and Event Master Plans

||||||||||||| ||||||||||||| |||||||||||||

Landmark Design has master planned several large event sites, including the recently completed Summit County Fairgrounds Master Plan and the Deseret Peak Recreation Complex Master Plan in Tooele County.

Since the late 1940’s the Summit County Fair has been held in Coalville and has become a signature event that not only provides opportunities to showcase livestock and farming traditions, but is a place and time for residents and visitors to come together and celebrate their community. As the fair has expanded over the years, the site is no longer large enough to accommodate the event. Utilizing an intensive public involvement process, Landmark Design led a multi-disciplinary team in the development of a master plan that meets existing and future needs, expanding the site and providing new and upgraded uses that will make better use of the site and a new look for the fairground. In addition to new park areas and playgrounds, the master plan includes a creekside trail and trailhead, additional parking and camping areas, a re-designed rodeo arena and warm-up facilities, a new multi-purpose center and new livestock facilities. The plan was adopted March of 2017, and the first phase of development is scheduled to be complete in early autumn 2018.

Landmark Design also led the development of the Deseret Peak Recreation Complex Master Plan. The plan assesses the current condition of the complex and establishes a vision to meet future needs for the sprawling site. Utilizing an extensive public involvement process, the planning process was comprehensive:

  • Review of facility use and financial operations
  • Analysis of comparable venues and recreation/venue trends
  • Documentation and Analysis of current conditions and future needs
  • Land use and site analysis
  • Parking, access, traffic and circulation analysis
  • Utility and infrastructure analysis
  • Development of a Preferred Master Plan, including opinions of cost and a phasing plan

The preferred plan leverages future transportation infrastructure improvements, redirecting growth and development from existing land south of the complex in a new direction to the east. The plan was completed in winter 2017 and adopted by the Tooele County Commission in March 2018.
