Minnesota Planning And Zoning Commission Grants 49-Site RV Park Conditional Use Permit

At a special meeting held on August 12, the Tower Planning and Zoning Commission in Minnesota approved Justin Renner’s RV Park project conditional use permit (CUP). According to a report, the motion to approve CUP was passed 4-1 with Kevin Norby voting no.

The CUP has been submitted to the Tower City Council along with a list of ten conditions and findings of fact supporting the decision for final approval. CUP will be included on the Aug. 23 council meeting agenda.

Renner’s proposal for a 49-unit RV park, on a 58-acre parcel of Pike Bay, next to the Your Boat Club property, raised some concerns at the Aug. 3 public hearing, especially regarding noise and screening.

Tony Jeffries, who is responsible for planning and zoning issues in the city, suggested that permit conditions be “broad” and vague. However, he said that the commission should examine the possibility of creating an RV Camp Ordinance that would require that RV parks comply with it.

He noted that the ordinance would apply to all other campgrounds and RV parks in the city, such as the Dave Rose property or Hoodoo Point Campground.

The findings, which are also part of CUP approval, state that the facility conforms to current zoning regulations. They will not pose a threat to the environment. These findings also confirm that the development is in line with the 2015 Tower-Breitung Comprehensive Plan. In addition, the findings show that RV camping is a well-documented need in the area. This development complements the harbor area as well as the existing development at Your Boat Club Marina, the report said.
