An abandoned RV park close to Parks in Arizona‘s Coconino County will get another boost following Coconino County Board of Supervisors’ refusal to hear a citizen’s appeal earlier in the month, a report said.
The development, which covers about 16 acres to the west of North Parks Road and Old Route 66, was approved by the commission for county planning and zoning.
However, the commission’s decision was contested by Parks residents who claimed that the development could affect traffic flow within the region and would not conform to the guidelines of the Parks area plan, which outlines the types of action that are appropriate for the neighborhood.
The park, which PLM Adventures proposed, would include 80 RV campsites and 25 campsites for tent camping.
Of the 80 RV sites, ten could have RVs semi-permanently placed on the site. They are rented to those who don’t have an RV but desire the experience of living in one.
There’s a substantial amount of existing infrastructure at the site from when the previous RV park was operating. Infrastructures include shower facilities, bathrooms, laundry facilities, and smaller items like picnic tables on individual locations and electrical outlets for RVs.
As the project progresses, the older buildings will be demolished to allow new facilities, said Jay Christelman, county community development director.
Two new courts for racquetball will also be built.
In the end, the supervisory board unanimously backed the developer.
