An application to change the zoning of land to build an RV camping area was ruled on Tuesday evening by Georgia’s Bulloch County commissioners.
Keith Dixon submitted two applications to be considered on the 13.81-acre of land. For the plan to push through, Dixon requested a zoning modification for the AG-5 property to General Commercial followed by a Conditional Use variance, a report said.
The Conditional Use application depended on the board’s approval of the zoning variance.
The RV park is part of the bigger project covering 430 acres owned by Dixon, including an exclusive, member-only ATV park. Dixon informed commissioners that it would hopefully keep ATV riders away from the roads and on the roadsides and provide recreation opportunities while keeping money in the county.
Steve Rushing, the attorney representing adjoining landowner Bradley Family and BBT Timberlands LLC, opposed the project.
However, the commissioners decided to accept both of the applications unanimously.
