Abstract:The Ad Hoc Committee on Dovestic Hoofed Livestock was formed in 1990 by the Douglas County Board of County Commissioners. The purpose of the committee was to decide "the extent to which the County should regulate [horse] boarding, breeding and training." The committee also dealt with other hoofed livestock such as llamas, buffaloes and miniature horses. The main issues the group addressed were (1) whether parking areas and arenas should be included in the regulated area of devegetation, (2) the Limited Impact Review Process, and (3) to what extent the County should regulate horse shows and special events. The committee was asked to decide on the best way to balance Douglas County's heritage as "horse country" with the growth of the county population in the 1990s.
