Kimberly Jacobs, wife of Boston Bruins hockey boss Charles Jacobs, has lost her battle against a 59-acre Equestrian Village.

Despite an emotional appeal about how the $80 million development transformed her home with noise, odors and lights, the village Planning, Zoning and Adjustments Board determined that the village had not erroneously interpreted its zoning rules.

“What is there now is completely not within the scale or character of what was intended,” Jacobs said. “We know that if things continue on like this, that this is just the beginning.”

But the commission found that zoning rules did not limit the entire Equestrian Village site at Pierson Road and South Shore Boulevard to 20,000 square feet of commercial space, as Jacobs had argued. The dressage arena itself is 80,000 square feet but it doesn’t fall under the cap because it has no walls, according to the Palm Beach Post. [Palm Beach Post] Christopher Cameron
