RANDOLPH COUNTY — After receiving updated illustrations earlier this month, the Randolph County Board of Commissioners approved at its regular May meeting the proposal of schematic design by HH Architecture for an agricultural center.

An overview of programming study and a proposal for design, bidding, and construction administration of the most recent iteration of the Farm, Food, and Family (F3) Education Center project was presented by Kristen Hess, principal architect with HH Architecture. Renderings now feature an event center; cooperative extension, soil and water offices; commercial kitchen; meeting spaces; exhibit hall with concessions; open-air arena for livestock shows and sales; and a proposed maker space.
