Q. - I have
been in the horse industry for many years. The amount of "horse
people" in Terrell is HUGE. Are there any plans on developing
a city arena? You can host many different events that will cater
to our equine community.
Answer - Thanks for your inquiry.
City government financial support for an equine event center would
call for some serious study. It has been suggested before that
there is enough "horse business" in our area to support
more facilities but no one has ever studied the details: site acquisition,
building costs, operating costs, revenues, etc.
The essential link for such a proposal would be The Terrell Economic
Development Corporation (EDC). The EDC's role is to investigate
possible economic development opportunities and, when appropriate,
put a proposal together and present it to the Terrell City Council
as a project.
If you have enthusiasm for such a project you could explore the
possibilities by contacting Danny Booth, Terrell Economic Development
Corporation at 972-563-5703 or email.
Having fallen off and been bucked off a few horses, I would suggest
looking for soft dirt!
