Woman may build a stable for her horse, board rules

April 05, 1995

The Carroll County Board of Zoning Appeals has overridden the county zoning administrator's decision to deny a Uniontown-area woman permission to build a private stable for one horse behind her home.

The board ruled that Beverly K. Cecil of the 2500 block of Uniontown Road should be allowed to build a stable on her 2.6-acre lot on the north side of Uniontown Road near the intersection with Frizzellburg Road.

County zoning law forbids stables on lots of less than 3 acres.

Neighbors from seven properties in the area testified in support of Ms. Cecil's plan at a Feb. 24 board hearing; one testified against, citing worries about noise, odor and insects.

Ms. Cecil testified that she would plant trees to shield the stable from view and would fence in about an acre in the rear of her property.
