PHOENIX — Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey is asking residents for their input on ways to modernize the Arizona Exposition & State Fairgrounds in Phoenix, according to a recent press release.

The state submitted a formal information request on Thursday to seek “strategic ways” to modernize the facility and “continue the tradition of quality entertainment, memories, and fun for years to come.”

Residents who want to give their input on improvements for the facility can do so online, where they will be asked two questions to expand on their recommendations.

The questions are: “What Do You Love About The Arizona State Fair?” and “What Could Be Done Differently At The Arizona State Fair?”

“Arizona is always looking forward and finding better ways to serve our citizens,” Ducey said in the press release. “We want to take the best aspects of our Fair and use them to make it even better with input from citizens across the state.”

We want to hear from you.
