Wheelchair Lift

In 2014 the CMWFHF took on the task of adding a wheelchair lift to the grandstand area. While there is currently a designated area for wheelchairs, the area is less than ideal viewing of events whether they are on the stage or on the racetrack. 

The CMWFHF investigated and received estimates for installing a lift and creating a designated seating area, the costs came in just a little under $20,000. After further investigation, the fairgrounds being a state "agency" required further requirements and standards. These additional requirements elevated the costs to approximately $65,000. The CMWFHF has raised $30,000 for the project and is in need of more donations for the balance.
