Plans to add an RV park with cabins to an existing business, and to turn a former business into an Airbnb in Seymour, Indiana, have moved forward, a report said.
At a recent meeting, the Seymour Plan Commission gave favorable suggestions to land use variances requested by Gregg Pardieck and Todd Storey with Parkland Inc. for an RV park and cabins.
The park will be on the Chateau de Pique Winery and Brewery property located at 6361 N. County Road 760E.
Brooke and Kim Fleetwood were also granted the same for the Airbnb at 400 North Chestnut St.
Pardieck requested an amendment to his land-use permit because his property is zoned as R-1 (single-family residential), R-S (single-family residential zoning district), and C-1 (neighborhood commercial). However, the latter does not allow RV parks.
Pardieck is currently seeking permission to build 45 RV stations and 20 cabins.
Speaking on behalf of Parkland Inc., attorney Jeff Lorenzo says the facility with full-service would include a bathhouse, electricity, and two ponds. It will also have a playground, restrooms and showers, a walking path, and a gatehouse. The management office on-site will be located within an existing building.
Cabins and the RV park will be situated between the railway tracks and the winery and are open from March/April until October/November. As per the city’s regulations, the rental period would be a maximum of 90-days.
The board decided 10-0 and 9-1, respectively, including Dave Eggers voting no. Jeri Wells was not present.
The final vote will be from the Seymour Board of Zoning Appeals at its next meeting on Sept. 28.
