City of Regina takes control of exhibition grounds
City council got their wish the City of Regina has taken control of the exhibition grounds.
City council voted Monday night to convert the 100-million dollars in land and buildings into a city-run, non-profit corporation.
The Exhibition Association had been a stand-alone organization for 105 years.
There won't be much impact on the roughly 170 full-time and 600 part-time workers.
Taking over the operation of the exhibition grounds also fits into one of the proposed plans for building a new stadium on that site.
