The Maggie Valley Board of Aldermen (North Carolina) has approved a six-month moratorium for the new campgrounds and RV parks construction within the town’s limits.

According to a report, the moratorium would allow city officials to review local laws in other towns and solicit input from the public.

Many residents are worried about the possibility of expanding RV parks, while business owners say that growth is required to create revenues.

“All they care about is if they start trying to pile in mobile homes or anything like that,” Maggie Valley resident Dave Lybrand said.

This moratorium will be of special significance for Developer Frankie Wood and his team, who are keen on reviving Ghost Town. Their business plan includes the creation of planned units developments to meet housing needs.

In December, the board decided to follow Attorney Brian Gulden’s advice not to adopt an amendment to ban campgrounds and RV parks.

“From my perspective as a lawyer, the moratorium is a far better tool to use than an outright ban on campgrounds, RV parks, RV storage,” said Gulden.
