Kiddy Up Ranch forced to move

By Tim Wronka May 12, 2018 @6:06 PMSHARE
NEW PORT RICHEY, Fla. -- It’s one of a few places in the Bay area that offers animal therapy for kids with disabilities.
  • Kiddy Up Ranch told to move
  • Pasco County says its in an area its not zoned for
  • The ranch provide animal therapy for kids with disabilities
Now it’s being told it has to shut down.The Kiddy Up Ranch in New Port Richey has been helping special needs kids for seven years. But Pasco County now says it’s not in an area zoned for it. It’s left families and kids alike worried about a program that’s been so special to them.

Days at the ranch are the best for 9-year-old Kiley Griggs.

“Horse therapy helps me so very, very much,” Kiley said.Kiley has cerebral palsy but her father Jason Griggs says she feels like any other kid when she does physical therapy on horses at the ranch.“What it does for my daughter and all of these other kids out here is phenomenal. These horses give these kids a bond, a sense of accomplishment, a team sport for them,” Griggs said.Fellow parent David Gautney recently lost his daughter Terissa. She is the 14-year old girl who passed away during a medical emergency on a school bus in Polk County. His daughter spent a lot of time at Kiddy Up Ranch. In fact, her picture is now the first thing you see there.“This farm meant so much to our daughter,” Gautney said. “As it does to all of the kids here. If you took a child-like Terissa that was wheelchair bound all of her life, spent her whole life looking up to people, you put her on a horse so she can feel more normal. That one hour a week made a tremendous difference.” Now suddenly Pasco County code enforcement says it has to come to an end.According to founder and director Tammy Sliger, the county now says she is not properly zoned to run the ranch as is. There had been recent complaints from an anonymous neighbor, which brought code enforcement out there. Instead of fighting it, she has decided it may be time to move out.

“We want to be compliant. But if the county says we need to go, we just need help doing it,” Sliger said.Tammy has found potential new land in Hudson but says it will take a lot to make any move, especially since they are a non-profit organization.“We’re going to need a barn. We don’t have as many trees, so we will need a covered place for the kids to ride. We’re going to need manual labor,” Sliger said. Parents like Griggs say it’s worth fighting for and they want to help in any way they can.

“If Kiddy Up wasn’t here, my kid would get worse. Where there’s a will; there’s a way. We’ll just get through it,” Griggs said.

Sliger says the plan now is for the Ranch to move out by the end of the summer. She is not planning to appeal the zoning.

If you can help at all, visit her website www.kiddyupranch.org.

Was thinking the exact same thing.
Plus, how does enforcing the code and zoning make them “nazis”?

Money talks in Florida. Seen it in all my 70 year life. As long as the retirees moving down here keep voting the same way, we are doomed to the same insanity. My home state is the joke of the universe and there is no end in sight.

If the zoning rules came after they were already there. And if I read correctly another post in THT another thread, once 7 years has passed, precedence is established; so long as contention hasn't been brought forward BEFORE the seven year mark..

Snooping douche bags complaining is what it boils down to.

If this were in my county, I would be very sympathetic. It's a very good thing. That being said, we all are against illegal immigrants because they are breaking the law. Change the law, grant an exception, grandfather it in legally, or shut it down.
comply with with the law

It is sad that this would have to end, as it helps others with disabilities. Unfortunately, zoning laws are in place for a reason.

My question is this, did any of the organization "founders" actually look into whether or not they could do this on their property before starting the venture? My property is zoned for horses, but not goats. Who came up with that rule, I don't know, but it would be my responsibility to find that information out before I bought goats. I did instantly think of the wedding venue thread as soon as I started reading this.

I want every single law followed to the letter every time, except the ones I don't like.

One was properly permitted and the other was not in compliance with an existing land use ordinance. I don't see the problem.

Hey Tommy, Pepin did something similar to a place like this. He eventually got so much heat he had to right his wrongs;
