The plan floated by the Ebony Horsewomen to build a $65 million equestrian center on at least 60 acres of Keney Park continues to cause a stir.

Last night, the topic came up again at a meeting of the council's Planning and Economic Development Committee. No action was taken as the council awaits a legal opinion from city attorneys.
