Santa Clara County Fairgrounds Future-Planning

2022 IN REVIEW AND COMING UP IN 2023!

PROPOSED DEVELOPMENT PROJECTS IN NEGOTIATION

American Cricket Enterprises Professional Cricket Stadium

In January 2022, Santa Clara County executed a 12-month Exclusive Negotiations Agreement (ENA) with American Cricket Enterprises for approximately 12 acres, to construct a professional cricket stadium for professional cricket games at the Santa Clara County Fairgrounds.

State-of-the-Art Soccer Complex

In April 2022, Santa Clara County approved an Exclusive Negotiations Agreement (ENA) with the San Jose Earthquakes for approximately 15 acres to construct a Soccer Complex for the Earthquakes and its Youth Academy at the Fairgrounds. The 15 acres will account for four regulation-sized soccer fields for private use of the professional soccer team and their Earthquakes Youth Academy. In addition 18.8 acres is proposed for the public use and would be the responsibility of the County to build and maintain 6 public soccer fields.

San Jose State University (SJSU)

In March 2022, the County Board of Supervisors entered into a ENA with SJSU for the development of a commemorative track and field facility on 9-acres. The project is in honor of the legacy of Speed and the Olympic Project for Human Rights. Santa Clara County was awarded $9 million in AB178, the Budget Act of 2022, for the Speed City Legacy Project.

FUTURE PROJECTS AND CAPITAL IMPROVEMENTS

Equestrian, Livestock, and Agricultural Education Center

The SCCFMC is exploring the design and build out of a 25-acre multi-use Equestrian, Livestock and Agricultural Education Center. Preliminary plans are in the works for the buildout of multipurpose use Arenas, Livestock Barns and Educational Facilities.

Multi-Year General Capital Improvements Program

The SCCFMC continues to identify and prioritize the critical needs of the Fairgrounds, which currently includes: completing the restoration of Commercial Kitchens in Expo Hall and OTB buildings, redevelopment of the Arena Concert Venue and installation of new signage throughout the fairgrounds.
