City Eyes New RV Park at Rochelle Municipal Airport

Illinois’ City of Rochelle is planning to build its own RV park at the Rochelle Municipal Airport in the near future, City Manager Jeff Fiegenschuh revealed.

The idea was born when trying to coordinate with Chicagoland Skydiving Center located at the airport, and operates its own RV park, according to a report.

The city would like to see more people attend CSC events and visit the airport. Fiegenschuh said he wants to ensure this area can be sustained long-term, something the RV park could aid in achieving.

“I really do think the airport is a valuable asset to the community, and you have the Flight Deck Bar & Grill and CSC, and I think there’s a lot of things we can do to continue to move the airport forward,” Fiegenschuh said.

“Part of that was the RV park, and if somebody wants to come out and watch the skydivers for a couple of days and CSC’s RV park is full, is there a place we could put them at the airport where they could stay and enjoy the festivities and earn some rental income for the airport?”

In a unanimous vote, the city council approved an update on the airport zoning. The update allows special use permits for brewpubs, banquet halls, restaurants, assembly/meeting halls, and public recreational facilities.

Fiegenschuh stated that a permanent RV park is included in the city’s five-year plan. He said the city wants to get started on the park “in the next couple of years.”

It would also be an additional recreational facility for the entire community apart from the existing REC Center, golf course, tennis courts, and parks. Fiegenschuh described recreational facilities as essential to any community.

“It’s a quality of life issue and what people value, and it’s important to have those types of amenities,” Fiegenschuh said. “The airport is one key to a successful community. We want to make sure that key is working at all times.”
