Opening Comments:

One goal of JCHC is to connect the many trails in Jefferson County, another is to preserve the Indiana Equestrian Center.
We welcome Meridian Farm's improvements to their property, which will help promote horse presence.
We are pursuing the request to have Croke Canal build a bridge to connect trails to Farmer's Highline Canal trail.

Concerns:

1. What does the zoning change to Conservation-1 mean? Will residences be built on the park property?
2. Will the City of Arvada continue to maintain the Equestrian Park as before? What will be different?
3. The proposed paved trail (for the benefit of multi-users) around the Equestrian Center: Will it be separate from the existing horse trail? And will there be signs indicating the separate trails?
4. What is the status of the Miller Photography request to rent/lease parking space on the west side of the Equestrian Center for their overflow of customers for events? Our concern is everyone's safety.

Answers from the Presenters and City Council:

1. Re-zoning to Con-1 will not allow any private or public buildings to be built on the property. All improvements will be for equine, pedestrian, and bicycle recreational use.
2. CIty of Arvada will continue to maintain the park. One big advantage is that Arvada police and fire--as well as Jeffco police--will respond to problems and emergencies.
3. The paved trail will be for pedestrians and bicycles, and the equestrian trails for riders only, with proper signage for each. The paved trail will not be close to the pavillion area, they say, but it bears looking at the plan to be sure.
4. There is no plan to allow overflow parking from Miller Photography at the Equestrian Center.
