Colorado Town Council Seeks To Regulate RV Development

Share this article

On Aug. 18, the Crawford Town Council held a regular evening meeting. Agenda items included a discussion of an ordinance that would regulate the establishment of a recreational vehicle business that proposes to establish an RV park north of the North Fork town in Colorado, a report said.

Cally Gallegos (Crawford town clerk) created a rough draft for an ordinance. This will establish fees and permit procedures, as well as define regulations and definitions. The concepts that will need to be defined include what constitutes “short-term” or “long-term”, RV presence. It is also necessary to define what constitutes a “liveable” RV.

Crawford already has ordinances in place that regulate RVs‘ presence on private property within its limits. The new ordinance will regulate multiple RVs at one location near the town’s edges.

A group of local citizens approached the town to propose the development of an RV park just east of Highway 92. Although the concept is still in its early stages, the council has created a draft ordinance. The intention is to get input from developers before finalizing it.

The council appears to prefer that park developers set standards and submit them for approval, rather than creating detailed rules. The council could then call an annual hearing to check if the park conforms to their standards and the town ordinance. It is hoped that a similar licensing renewal process to that of establishing and renewing a liquor license would be developed.

Staff was asked to refine the ordinance draft with the goal of bringing the topic back up at the next council meeting.
