After a stakeholders planning meeting earlier this year, MetraPark management is now looking for public input on the future design of the 189 acre county facility.

In February, commissioners and stakeholders met with Charlie Smith of Charles D. Smith Architecture and Planning, LLC from Tennessee.

Smith helped with the planning of the Expo Center and the Montana Pavilion and commissioners asked him to come back and help.

They came up with ideas for the land if the Grandstand were to be demolished.

Metra has set up a way for the public to comment online.

Those comments that will help with shape the new MetraPark.

"We're in the middle of a master plan organization at MetraPark to kind of see what we will have in the next 10, 20 years on the grounds,," said Ray Massie, MetraPark marketing director. "With the removal of the grandstand, we have a whole vista of opportunities."
