Proposed Changes to Equestrian Preserve

Postby EquineGR » Sat Apr 29, 2017 3:32 pm

Mark Bellissimo and Wellington Equestrian Partners are seeking amendments to Wellington's Comprehensive Plan and Land Development Regulations. These changes would create new "Venue" classifications for equestrian venues that meet certain criteria. These classifications, if applied, would remove the subject properties from the Equestrian Preserve and allow ancillary uses that are appropriate for equine venues.

Below is the link where you can access application information along with the staff report by clicking "Agenda" for the 05-13-2017 PZAB meeting. You can also view the video of the 4-5-2017 meeting of the Equestrian Preserve Committee.

A Master Plan is not required at this point because the criteria that the Master Plan must abide with is in the application process. With that said, the applicant is having a draft Master Plan prepared.

So WEF is over for the season and no-one is tracking this development stuff while they hose down their Memorial Day lawn furniture in CT. It's going to end up being a big damn deal when ya'all get ready to whine about Wellyworld again. Just saying.

The more people that hear the information the more people will support it.

There is no way the Preserve will be paved over or inundated with commercial development. All development in the Preserve will be equestrian.

And John Wash and many others are correct, we don't have an equetrian Preserve. What we have is an equestrian district that is made possible by and sustained by equestrian venues that attract exhibitors and players and sponsors from around the world.

10 years ago high-level equine sport in Wellington almost died and then almost moved out of Wellington. But the local equestrian industry must evolve in order to remain healthy.
