Letter from the EPC Chair – December
Season’s Greetings to all my fellow Equestrians and their families:
Season in Wellington has begun. The traffic, both vehicular and equestrian, is picking up and the show grounds are busy every weekend. This missive will be short as I too am preparing for the holidays and everything else that goes with horse season in Wellington.
First, the final meeting on the design of the paving in Saddle Trail Park will be on December 10th at 6:15. I understand there will be a complete mockup of a typical cross section using the entire Council chambers. This will give everyone a chance to see exactly, in real scale, what this will look like. I urge anyone with an interest to attend the meeting. We have received several important comments regarding hedges and footing so far which have caused some changes to the design.
Second, we are continuing our discussion on the future of the EOZD. Treasure Coast is coming back to assist in this process. Please at least give a watch on Comcast channel 18 or online here at http://wellington.granicus.com/MediaPlayer.php?publish_id=2 . These discussions should take place both at the December 10th meeting and the December 18th meeting which is at 7PM. We will be working on a new survey as part of our discussion and getting that out for feedback soon afterwards, so be on the lookout. Information packets for the meetings can be found here: https://wellington.legistar.com/Calendar.aspx.
Last, there is still confusion going around about golf carts. Florida State Statutes allow low speed vehicles on roadways with a speed limit of 35 or less. The confusion is that a lot of low speed vehicles look like golf carts, but not all golf carts are low speed vehicles. The link to the statute is here: http://www.wellingtonfl.gov/departments/strategic-planning/equestrian-community/golf-cart-state-statute.html Page 4 & 5 give the requirements for a low speed vehicle.
Wishing everyone a very Happy and Healthy holiday season.
Until next year,
