Meadowood Equestrian Facility
February 2012 Update: An Environmental Assessment (EA) is being completed to inform a future decision on repairs or construction related to the equestrian facility. The EA will be available on this web page this spring.
When the BLM acquired Meadowood Special Recreation Management Area in 2001, the former private property included a horse stable that was more than 30 years old and contained privately-owned, boarded horses. During the last 10 years, the BLM has increased public use of the facility which now hosts public therapeutic and riding lesson programs as well as private boarding. The concern is that the stables, including the indoor riding arena, do not meet International Building Code (IBC) and Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) standards for public use as documented by several reports and analyses. The photo above shows the facility as of July 2011 (click on the photo for a larger view).
The EA will provide a variety of proposed actions for the equestrian facility that will include safe and improved public access. Recent actions have been taken to mitigate barn safety concerns, including increasing siding and column supports, installing a new waterline, covering the electrical panel, and labeling non-potable water sources.
Please revisit this website for future updates. Plans for this site include sharing documents relevant to the project as they become available.
