The Horse Station at Cache Valley took a big step toward becoming reality on Thursday evening, as the Franklin City Planning and Zoning Commission voted unanimously to approve a rezone application and preliminary plat for the project, according to a press release from Strategy 5 LLC - Master Developer for the project.
The horse-sports and commercial mixed-use project planned for 167 acres in Franklin, Idaho, will host training and boarding facilities, retail and commercial businesses, an equine veterinary center, indoor and outdoor arenas, a hotel, condominiums, and cultural and educational elements.
“We are gratified with the continuing expressions of support from the community, and we are looking forward to the next step in the approval process which will be a presentation before the Franklin City Council next Wednesday,” said Ernest Bleinberger, principal of Strategy 5 LLC.
The Horse Station is located on the southern border of Idaho in Franklin City and is bounded on the east by Rt. 91 which is a major tourism route linking southern Utah, Colorado, Nevada, and points south, with Yellowstone National Park, The Grand Teton National Park, Jackson, Wyoming, and points north.
