Elizabethtown City Council Approves RV Campground Zoning Change

Despite strong opposition from neighbors, Elizabethtown City Council (Kentucky) took the recommendation of the commission to approve a zone change for an RV campground.

According to a report, the change will allow an RV campground at 2798 S. Dixie Ave. The property was approved for a high-density residential area, changing it from general residential.

Residents of the nearby Ivy Pointe subdivision spoke at the commission’s meeting on Tuesday against the zone change, focusing on noise and light pollution.

The property, owned by Two Winding Springs, was not granted its initial zone change by the commission, and an appeal to the city council was also rejected.

After modifying its plan to add eight-foot-high solid wood fencing in areas that were not sufficiently blocked by the exterior of the buildings and other landscaping requirements, the commission endorsed the zone change.

The campground aims to meet the need for housing for expected construction workers at BlueOval SK in Glendale and vacationers, said the project’s Civil Engineer, Warren Clifford.

“What the developers are wanting to do with this development is provide something for the community that is needed and doesn’t really exist right now,” Clifford said in the April 12 meeting.

The council unanimously approved the change without discussion.
