Havelock to seek grant for Lewis Farm Road park project

Sandra Lloyd, owner of Cabala Stables on Lewis Farm Road, was against the park and said the city should be looking at other options for land. Lloyd received applause from some in attendance after stating "let’s not make a decision based on a grant deadline."

City officials have until the end of the month to apply for the grant.

Edward Lloyd, commented after his wife, suggesting the city capitalize on the horse industry and use the property as a trail head for use by state 4H Clubs and others.

"We rode horses long before we rode in cars," he said.

Robin Fields, who said she keeps a horse on Lewis Farm Road, worried about additional traffic on the otherwise rural road.

"It’s not a safe place for horses and cars," she said.

Clint Jones, of Havelock, said the horse stables and park could co-exist.
