The city of Ketchum will host its second annual Fair on the Square event Friday, May 31, to offer the public a chance to learn more about key initiatives and sound off on its plans for the future.

The event will begin at 4 p.m. and run until 7:30 p.m. in Town Square, and will boast food, refreshments, music and activities for kids, according to a city news release.

The city is seeking feedback on its proposals for a new fire station, which will require voter approval of a bond for at least $10 million this November, construction of affordable housing on its existing City Hall site at 480 East Ave., environmental sustainability and e-bike use on the bike paths around Ketchum.

The city will also take suggestions on future housing opportunities, sidewalk improvements, recreation opportunities and events, according to the news release.

“I’m excited to share what we’ve been doing since we heard from the community at last year’s Fair on the Square,” Mayor Neil Bradshaw said in the news release. “Lots of exciting projects are being planned, and the public’s participation and input is vital to meeting the city’s vision to create a safe and vibrant town.”

The children’s activities will include a climbing wall, face painting, arts and crafts, and balloon animals, according to the city. Food and beverage vendors will be set up with items for purchase.
