Lawmakers: Officials didn't share demolition plan

PHOENIX (AP) - Arizona legislators say State Fair officials who briefed lawmakers recently on building improvement plans didn't disclose a plan to demolish an historic building, and the lawmakers aren't happy about it.

Fair officials have planned to have the Civic Building that was built in 1938 demolished because of leaks and other problems, but the demolition is temporarily on hold because of a legal challenge.

Meanwhile, the Arizona Republic ( reports that fair officials recently briefed a legislative oversight committee on facilities plans that include paving the building site and additional property.

Legislators say the demolition should have been mentioned. A fair official says it didn't have to be because the demotion is a separate project whose cost is below the threshold requiring submission to the oversight committee.
