Christian County has done it again!!!!!! They are more apt to approve a stinking factory that employs 200 people than they are a BEAUTIFUL, EYE-APPEALING, PROPERTY VALUE RAISING equestrian center. That is why NO DEVELOPERS EVER consider putting anything or any new big business in this county. This could have brought in $$$$$$$$$ to the county by holding events there. The neighbors that opposed this are so stupid. Having a facility like this nearby would have raised their property value. They are probably the kind of people that think the horse poo would stink!!!!! Congratulations to Webster County!!!!! I think that this is where the facility will end up. They have the brains to realize that you dont turn something like this away. Christian County is notorious will all the developers. They already know to steer clear of us, because our city government and planning and zoning are impossible to deal with. Again, Congratulations to Webster County!!!

Thank God,Christian County said:NO!This kind of development belongs on a public water and sewer system.How would you like it if your well went dry?One neighbour just paid 75000 dollars to have hers redrilled,another already redrilled 3 times.But the bottom line is the development was not compatible with the surrounding zoning A-R and A-1,those are the lowest density zoning designations we have.To build a city there misrepresented as an "Equestrian Center"would have gone against everything in Christian County's land use plan.You're aware the water tower would have been 100000 gallons,same as the one the City of Sparta has.And what about the secrecy?These developers refused to let Planning and Zoning know who they were,or if they were financially able to do what they proposed,questionable after they bounced the check to Planning and Zoning and others.Very strange when somebody proposes a 160 Million Dollar development.

Seems to me this is all about tax money for the county.Since they need money real bad and we're all mostly broke they should bring ALDI grocery store here.We could all save alot of money and people would come from all over and the county would rake in loads of sales tax,everybody happy.
