4-H, Youth, and Community Livestock Arena Updates
Since August 2022, construction crews have been hard at work transforming an uneven dirt parking lot into a beautiful new arena for the Larimer County community. The team recently erected the steel structure of the building and is working to enclose the entire arena. As of April 2023, the roof has been placed and teams are currently working on insulation and interior walls to lay out the classrooms, restrooms and arena spaces within the building.
The Community Arena is expected to be complete in January 2024.
