The Georgetown-Scott County Planning Commission (Kentucky) has approved the development of a new RV Park and an Airstream dealership, while also rejecting a zoning change for a separate project.
A report from the Georgetown News-Graphic highlighted that the commission’s unanimous approval of the 75-stall RV Park at 3036 Paris Pike is set to bolster the local outdoor hospitality sector.
Located strategically between Patriot RV and Bluegrass RV Storage, the park is poised to cater to the growing demand for quality RV accommodations. Planner Elise Ketz emphasized that the final development plan must include a lighting plan to minimize impact on neighboring properties, reflecting the commission’s commitment to responsible development.
The RV park, devoid of any buildings, will feature 137,065 square feet of pavement for stalls and internal roads, offering ample space for RV enthusiasts. This development is expected to attract more visitors to the area, potentially boosting local businesses and contributing to the economic vitality of the outdoor hospitality industry.
Simultaneously, the commission approved a 12,123 square foot Woodland Airstream dealership at 120 Wahland Path. This dealership, located near the I-75 Exit 125 on-ramp and across from the Camping World dealership, is set to become a key player in the RV market. Offering both new and used RVs along with service facilities, the dealership will include 30 passenger vehicle spaces and 79 display spaces, ensuring a comprehensive customer experience.
The establishment of the Woodland Airstream dealership is a significant addition to the local RV market. It not only provides a boost to the RV sales and service sector but also enhances the variety and quality of RV options available to enthusiasts and travelers. This development is likely to attract more RV owners and enthusiasts to the region, further stimulating the local economy and the outdoor recreation industry.
In a contrasting decision, the commission unanimously denied a zoning map amendment for a 2.28-acre parcel at the back of Crestlawn Cemetery at 1879 Lexington Road. The request aimed to change the zoning from A-1 agricultural to I-2 industrial for use as equipment storage by a neighboring asphalt company.
The approval of the RV Park and Airstream dealership by the Georgetown-Scott County Planning Commission is a testament to the growing importance of the outdoor hospitality and recreation industry in the region. These developments are not only expected to enhance the local economy but can also provide significant opportunities for campground and outdoor hospitality operators to expand and improve their services.
