Steuben County Community Center • Angola, IN

(ANGOLA) - A proposed Community Building at the Steuben County 4-H Fairgrounds has been reduced in size in order to stay under budget. Architect Tim Wall from Donohue/Herceg and Associates told Steuben County Commissioners and the County Building Committee on Tuesday night that in order to come in at $1.8 million, all of the offices were removed from the plans. In addition, a showroom will be the only room on the upper level outside of restrooms and a foyer. The rest of the space on both sides of the showroom will be used for a patio. The lower level is still the same. The building would still be used for a storm shelter that would hold over 2,400 people. The County will seek a grant of up to $3 million from F.E.M.A.. The application process is continuing and the county is expected to get an answer from the federal agency in late December. County Commission Chair Ron Smith said they don't plan to ask for further funds from the County Council after some Council members raised financial concerns last month. A public hearing on the F.E.M.A. application will be held during the County Commissioners meeting next Monday afternoon at 2:30pm. Plans call for the building to be constructed into the hill where the rodeo arena is located at. The current livestock barns would be moved south of the proposed building's parking lot. The horse barn and horse arena would stay at its current location.
