OCALA, Fla. (WCJB) - Marion County commissioners are meeting to vote on a proposal to expand the Ocala Jockey Club.

Marion County residents are opposed to the expansion of the former Ocala Jockey Club.

They are opposed because the one thousand plus acres lie within the county’s farmland preservation area.

It also is outside the county’s urban growth boundary.

The expansion would include 94 residential units, an agricultural hotel, an exhibition area, and competitive trail riding.
