The Livestock and Equine Heritage Committee (LEHC) serves as a resource supporting Woodside's charter, its residents, the planning and building department, and Town Council. The LEHC provides critical information and best practices for keeping diverse livestock and enriching our exceptional rural lifestyle. 

The LEHC develops helpful guidelines for construction and maintenance of barns and paddocks that protect the health and safety of horses and other commonly kept livestock. Public outreach from the LEHC includes emergency preparedness, liaison with county and volunteer organizations, and on-site problem solving support for owners or potential owners of livestock.
