Oak Meadows Ranch
Petition City of Wildomar

 

Petition - You Can Help - By signing your name below and why you believe Oak Meadows Ranch should be able to continue sharing the rescued horses with the community and should not have to pay a $10,000 Conditional Use Permit to the City of Wildomar. Once you have filled out your name, the city and state you live in and your reason why it would be appreciated if you send us an email at bluepearlproject@gmail.com with your contact information.
 
Oak Meadows Ranch needs your help.The city of Wildomar has requested that Oak Meadows Ranch get what is called an Conditional Use Permit so Oak Meadows Ranch can continue to share the rescued, unwanted horses with the visitors and continue to allow visitors use of the property. The cost of this Conditional Use Permit may be as high as $10,000. With your help Oak Meadows Ranch from donations can continue to share the rescued, unwanted horses with the community such as with special needs children, special needs adults, senior citizens, children, teenagers and adults of all ages. Visitors will be able to still be able to groom, care and exercise horses and ride the rideable horses and for those that need to do community service with this Conditional Use Permit. Oak Meadows Ranch needs your help for all of this to continue in the future or the city of Wildomar may not allow visitors visiting the ranch if the Conditional Use Permit is not paid. These rescued, unwanted horses need your help, love and affection. Without our help many of these horses would be dead today. Many would have been slaughtered and used for food in other countries. You currently are hearing on the local news that many well known companies to us are using horse meat for food and serving it to people. Blue Pearl Project and Oak Meadows Ranch would appreciate if you spread the word that a donation of any kind, small or large would be greatly appreciated so that the Conditional Use Permit fee can be raised and be paid to the city of Wildomar so that the city of Wildomar will be happy and those that have and still do plan to visit the rescued, unwanted horses and use the facilities at Oak Meadows Ranch can.

Having lived most of my life in Orange County starting in Huntington Beach, Fountain Valley, Irvine, Aliso Viejo and Mission Viejo I would have loved to have been able to visit a place like Oak Meadows Ranch. There were no horse stables or places to be with horses or ride horses period. I would have spent all day light hours with horses and I certainly would have preferred horses over boys as a teenager. It would have kept me out of trouble. Most people don't even want to ride a horse. Most want to be able to visit a horse, groom a horse, talk to a horse, love a horse. Why in the world would a city like Wildomar that doesn't have a place like Oak Meadows Ranch want to make it so difficult for something like this to exist for all ages when they don't offer it as a city themselves? Shame on you Wildomar for trying your best to take away something so many need that you don't offer. So concerned they put fencing up to be used as an arena so anybody can use. You don't offer it! Next thing you will rezone Dejong Dairy and take that away so you can build houses and get tax dollars. Shame on you. All you want to do is rezone property just like you did the horse rescue that rescues wild mustangs because the city council and city planners are only interested in city dollars and want to take away what makes Wildomar great, to be rural and the history of Wildomar which means horses and horse ranches exist. I have contacted Oak Meadows Ranch and should they need me to attend a town hall meeting I will be there, I will be there with as many horse lovers as possible and make sure the media is there. You should be kissing the butt of Oak Meadows Ranch for what they do for your city.

I only have a minute, so I can't write everything I would like to at this time....but I would hope that the City of Wildomar would NOT ask for special permits or any fees (especially fees that could be as high as $10,000). The people at Oak Meadows are doing fabulous work for the horses - AND for the community - and they should be able to continue doing this without being charged for it!!!! I understand that donations help with some of the costs related to helping the horses.....but these folks also put in a LOT of hard work in caring for the horses. If the City of Wildomar deems it necessary to charge these fees, they might be forcing the Ranch to stop doing the work that they're doing by making it completely unaffordable. GIVE THESE PEOPLE A BREAK AND LET THEM CONTINUE TO SAVE HORSES AND MAKE THESE RESCUED HORSES AVAILABLE TO PEOPLE WHO CAN'T HAVE A HORSE OF THEIR OWN.....BUT WOULD LOVE TO COME VISIT THESE HORSES FOR A SMALL DONATION.

What a wonderful, loving thing that this family is doing out of deep love for horses. They love each and every horse they rescue and have opened their gates to allow local residents that do not have the opportunity to own their own horse and live on a ranch, to be to able to love these animals too. Craig and Debbie are actually "giving" to the community by providing this. I do not understand why the City of Wildomar would enforce such a burden on this organization. Instead, I would think Wildomar would be in FAVOR of supporting this type of experience. Do you not agree that the life experiences this horse ranch provides is what a community needs to create more HUMANE humans? or would you prefer having more "meth" labs in Wildomar?

I hope that it all works out in your favor. Yall been doin just fine without this hefty bill on yalls back. My nephew loves this place.

This is place a total gem. I love the support of life, not just to these beautiful animals, but to also the human families that have been given a blessed opportunity to support them. Many of us don't own Ranches and have kids who need to experience what it is like to serve and love others. This is something you can't - and shouldn't - put a price on. (At least not on a public permit, that is completely unnecessary). That 10,000 could easily be for the horses, not for a piece of paper.

I am saddened to hear the dilema the City of Wildomar is putting the Blue Pearl Project in. These people do a wonderful service not only for the people like us who lost their home, thus had no where for our 2 horses we've raised for the past 24 years to live. They not only rescue horses and take horses that no longer have homes, the services they share with children and handicapped children is amazing. I have been there time after time to visit with our horses and the others and have personally seen the smiles and joy on the childrens, teenagers and adults faces. This is one of the best things to come to the valley. I dont know of any other ranches like this in Wildomar. Debbie and Craig are fantastic people who truly love the animals and do a fantastic job. They continue to want to add services and it seems like the city of Wildomar does not appreciate what they do for so many!!!

Oak Meadows Ranch is an incredible addition for the City of Wildomar! It is a great community asset as a place for kids and adults to go and spend time with these beautiful rescued horses, who would otherwise not have the care and attention they receive at the ranch! It's also a place to learn more about horses and how to care for them, it's a great place to volunteer, especially since so many of us cannot afford to have a horse, this is a way to enjoy and help out our community! The horses look forward to the visits from all of us, the way they come to the edge of their corrals when you have carrots or apples for them, it's so heartwarming to see that! Please let Oak Meadows Ranch continue without charging them these outrageous fees!

Craig and Debbie are doing something for this community that is truly incredible. Not only is this a rescue for horses but for all of us too. There is nothing like this place. It is truly the most peaceful place to be. There is no exotic tropical place in the world that would give the same amount of tranquility that being here gives me. And I'm sure many would feel the same. $10, 000? Seriously? It is sickening to think that the city is more worried about money than actually taking the effort to open their eyes and see what a unique and special place this is. Please don't do this Wildomar.

I think it is time that our local politicians demonstrated what good & honest leadership should be by not hitting Oak Meadows ranch with that redicelously high permit! This facility brings so much good to our community by providing our youth, our elderly, & even our special needs citizens with a positive outlet. There is no other place around that allows so many children to volunteer & feel a part of something greater than themselves. Our community needs Oak Meadows just as much as those magnificent, innocent animals need them. I hope that the city will put first the benefits of this facility to our community before they stash more money in their own pockets. I hope they can search within their own hearts to find the strength to stand up for what's right & prove to all of us watching that they really are good leaders. Our community is counting on you to make the right choice for a much deserving, selfless, & honorable ranch.

Oak Meadows Ranch is a beautiful place doing a beautiful thing. To charge such an astronomical fee is beyond comprehension. The City of Wildomar needs to look at this non-profit organization from a completely different view point...as an asset to the city, not in terms of how much money the city can take from it, but how people who are drawn to the ranch will patronize local businesses while in Wildomar. I know I do. Please re-consider!

I am a Wildomar Resident and have just recently learned about this local horse rescue. What a wonderful thing Oak Meadows Ranch is doing for these animals and our community! The hard working owners of the ranch are doing what they can, to find enough in donations just to cover the cost of feed and vet care for these animals, that OTHER people decided they no longer wanted. A $10,000 permit on top of that is unreasonable! I look forward to taking my son and daughter's Cub Scout and Girl Scout groups there to learn about horse care and see if there a community service activity the kids can be a part of. Please waive or keep their permit fee at $1000 or less, so Oak Meadows Ranch can continue what they are doing! Thank you!

I really hope that Oak Meadows Ranch and other places like this can continue to operate the way that they have with no extra fees being paid to the city. I recently had to have my horse of 15 years placed here and I want the best possible place for her to live out her years. Please consider what I takes to run a place like this and all the generosity they put towards the community and horses in need of a safe place to be.

Dear City of Wildomar,

I feel you owe us, as residents of this once very animal friendly community, an effort to contribute to the well being of unfortunate animals by attempting to cooperate with the success of this private interest, since we have to be home to a high kill animal shelter.
Jackie Bragdon on April 13, 2013 at 1:12 PM said:

City of Wildomar, please revise the fees for the Conditional Use Permit for Oak Meadows - %10,000 is too high for them to continue operations. While I am not a horse expert, nor do I live in the area, I do have two friends involved in horse breeding in years passed who respect Oak Meadows and sees the good they do. Please do the right thing by keeping the fee low, allowing them to continue their good work for horses and their community.
