San Diego County’s proposed Tiered Equine Ordinance will go before the Planning Commission for a vote on Friday, June 14.
The Planning Commission meets at 9 a.m. in the County Operations Center (COC) Conference Center Hearing Room, 5520 Overland Ave., San Diego.
The equine ordinance creates a four-tiered system that would eliminate the need for a discretionary permit for small commercial horse stables, depending on the numbers of horses and the size of usable acreage.
Approved by the Ramona Community Planning Group at its March meeting, the ordinance focuses on providing more flexibility and less permitting costs for smaller operations. It will be a little more restrictive for larger facilities, according to county staff.
