Johnson Consulting, in association with Charles D. Smith Architecture & Planning and MIG, are preparing a Master Plan for the Illinois State Fairgrounds.

With the vision to position the Fairgrounds to be a more significant, year-round driver of economic, cultural and entertainment activities, the Consulting Team’s scope includes an evaluation of the state of the Illinois State Fairgrounds today; an analysis of the economic, demographic, and market characteristics of Springfield and Sangamon County, as well as the broader region; identification of the characteristics of regional and comparable facilities; stakeholder and community engagement; strategic recommendations and conceptual options for site uses; site analysis; cost estimates associated with various options; and projections of demand and financial performance, and economic and fiscal impacts, of the Fairgrounds property based on the identified master plan recommendations.
