Wellington’s council could end one of the most contentious periods in the village’s history tonight by giving final approval to developer Mark Bellissimo’s dressage complex in the equestrian preserve.

The council will consider two applications from Mr. Bellissimo that would allow him to hold equestrian events year-round in his facility at Pierson Road and South Shore Boulevard. The applications are the culmination of four months of discussions between Mr. Bellissimo’s team and village staff since the council approved a settlement in June that put the developer’s lawsuits against the village on hold while he pursued the new approvals.
