Solano County and LCA Architects are hosting an informational meeting for Quail Canyon residents and the neighboring communities about an equestrian center application.
The Conditional use permit application submitted to Solano County (use permit application U-22-01) lists the request to include two covered arenas (including a 1,800-square-foot covered arena), three outdoor training pens, three barns (which can hold up to 17 horses each) to house 48 horses, buildings for storage, a caretaker residence, a water tank plus other amenities.
The informational public meeting is scheduled for Wednesday, Dec. 14 from 6–8 p.m. at the Solano County Events Center at 601 Texas St. in Fairfield.
Solano County currently does not have a timeline to do an environmental review or a planning commission review.
Some Quail Canyon residents spoke to the Express with concerns about the property proposal. Resident Nate Hardy confirmed that some of his neighbors have concerns regarding evacuation in a fire and bringing in more traffic to the private road. Hardy said he has questions about where will the water will come from to care for the horses, noting his own well water is slowly drying up.
