Castleton Lyons Farm has filed plans to subdivide over 1,000 acres of their farm into 16 individual lots, according to a story in the Lexington Herald-Leader on Friday.

The story says that the lots range from 40 to over 80 acres along Mount Horeb Pike. Castleton Lyons lies outside the urban service boundary, meaning that there are restrictions on the land use and lot sizes.

The original farm dates back more than 200 years, and was purchased by Dr. Tony Ryan in 2001. It underwent major renovations, and the breeding shed opened in 2004.

A review of the plan should come up at the July 3 Urban County Planning Commission subdivision committee meeting, the Herald-Leader reported, with the full planning commission eyeing the plans at their July 11 meeting.

Dr. Ryan, an Irish billionaire and the founder of Ryanair, died in 2007.
