The Jackson County Fairgrounds will have a new name come next year.

Online paper, M-Live, is reporting that the County Board of Commissioners unanimously voted to approve the changing of the name to Keeley Park.

County documents show that Keeley Park was the name of the space dating back a century.

County officials want to rename the grounds so it can be rebranded as a year-round, multi-use park instead of the fairgrounds that are used only once a year.
