If you have read the newspaper or watched the news there could be a great injustice going on at the [Nashville, TN] Fairgrounds/Race Track. They (city) are trying to take your Fair Grounds and sell it to a Developer and move your State Fair and you the people of the State of TN that is your property and you have a say on if you want the Fair to Stay or Go. You the people of the State of TN need to tell the Fair Board to leave your property alone. And leave the State Fair right where it is. And fix it up. The City/State does not need to burden on the tax payers to move the Fairgrounds. Because, if they move the Fairgrounds the property taxes around the Fairgrounds property will go up. No, this is not right at all. According to the City Charter the Fair Board can not sell that property and could be a great injustice being done to the people of the State of TN.
Where you need to look in the City Charter is Administration Fair Board Commissioners Acts of 1909 Chapter 490 Section 7 and this was passed 1909.
SECTION 7. That should any property be conveyed or leased by Davidson County to the
State of Tennessee as aforesaid, for the purpose of holding thereon said annual fairs, the said Board
of Fair Trustees shall use and maintain said property for the purpose set forth in this Act, and should
said property, without good and sufficient cause, such as bad weather, fire, storm, pestilence war, etc.
cease to be used for the purpose herein set forth for a period of two years, beginning with the last day
of any annual fair, then and in that event said property, with all fixtures thereon, shall revert back to
and become the absolute property of the donor or conveyor, and all right, title, and interest whatever
in said property which shall have been acquired by the State of Tennessee shall become null, void, and
extinguished. This provision shall constitute a condition of the acceptance and use of said property
by the State of Tennessee. In this manner and upon this condition the State of Tennessee through
its said Board of Fair Trustees, shall accept and use such property as may be conveyed, leased, or
otherwise tendered to the State of Tennessee by Davidson County for the purpose of holding thereon
an annual State Fair; ...
Passed: May 1, 1909.
The other matter is the Race Track and truthfully that is part of NASCARS History.
