State Fair Considers Construction Options

Douglas, WY – Wyoming State Fair Director Barney Cosner is confident a large building project for the state fairgrounds in Douglas will be realized. Cosner says fair officials have been weighing their options following a 40 percent increase in steel prices and an overall 20 to 25 percent increase in other building materials. He says officials have considered everything from a change in building materials to modifying the configuration of the buildings. Cosner says nothing has been rule out. But he's confident the goal of construction two year-round buildings will be accomplished within budget.
