A North Truro (Mass.) Zoning Board of Appeals decision was thrown out, but a new agreement requiring a private campground to repair areas it bulldozed in the year 2016 and to limit the use of campsites has been signed as per Wicked Local.
However, it is expected that the utility and sewer installations that the campground Horton’s Camping Resort had always wanted will be completed, but with some restrictions in the agreement.
On November 16, a Barnstable Superior Court judge approved the agreement by Truro and A/C Mobile Home Park, Inc. This Florida company owns Hortons, located on contiguous land off South Highland Road and Old Dewline Road. The campground has 218 campsites on 32 acres, all within the Cape Cod National Seashore boundaries.
The judge’s approval comes after five years of regulatory dispute and court filings involving the campground owners, the town of Truro, the Seashore, and the state Division of Fisheries and Wildlife. The judge’s approval on November 16 resolves the issues between the town of Truro and the campground only.
“I’m glad that a resolution was reached,” said Truro Select Board Chairman Robert Weinstein Monday (Nov. 29).
