A letter of the Bureau of Land Management that I sent out concerning the Stables at Meadowood in Lorton.
February 24, 2009
Dear the Bureau of Land Management,
As the Bureau of Land Management considers the future use of the Meadowood property in Lorton, Virginia, I am hoping much thought will go into continuing the use of the property to include the boarders of horses as a part of the Meadowood Special Recreation Area.
Not only is this equine boarder facility incredibly important to all of the people who board, work, and live there but it is also an exquisite gem in our community. Members of our community use The Stables at Meadowood as a place to not only work but also enjoy life. The boarders also bring in a great deal of revenue to Fairfax County which will be lost if the boarders are forced to relocate.
The stables have been a wonderful asset to our community. The therapeutic program, Simple Changes, is a rewarding and excellent program that takes place at Meadowoods. Our local Girl Scout troops also take pleasure in visiting the facility to learn about horses and the care they need in order to complete their badges.
If I can be of any other assistance, please do not hesitate to contact me.
David B. Albo
