Proposed Changes to Alamance County’s RV Park Ordinance Worry Park Owners

Alamance County’s (North Carolina) planning director has been thinking twice about a set of rules for mobile homes and RV parks that have received much attention from park owners in the county’s rural parts.

A report mentioned Tonya Caddle, the county’s planning and inspections director. She told the county’s board of commissioners on Tuesday that she decided not to push through with the rules for the moment. She went before the board of commissioners to propose a list of potential changes to the county’s united development ordinance.

In her presentation, Caddle formally asked the commissioners to organize a public hearing next month regarding these changes, which Alamance county’s planning board recommended.

The planning board’s recommendation included expansive new limits on recreational vehicles, mobile homes, and other types of movable dwellings. Caddle advised the commissioners that she decided to remove these limitations from the overall package to allow the county’s planning board to tweak their recommendations.

“We’re recommending to take that back to the planning board,” she said. “There’s been a lot of discussion since the planning board heard it.” The proposals that she wants to return to the planning board were brought up to accommodate an influx of requests for RV parks, which are currently subject to the same rules and regulations as mobile home-oriented developments.

The proposed new rules require stricter limitations on mobile homes and RVs. They also suggested a sliding scale of land-spacing regulations that would ban any further development from being erected within 25-450 feet of existing mobile homes and RV parks.

These zones of separation that would depend on the number of development lots would also apply to “protected” structures like schools, churches, or even single-family houses.

The proposed regulations were met with the Alamance county planning board’s unanimous support. The planning board had eventually suggested the possibility of a sliding scale of land-spacing requirements as an alternative to the tighter 1,000-foot limit that Caddle proposed.

The planning board’s recommendations have drawn some protests from the owners and managers of RV parks—many of whom were in attendance at the meeting on Tuesday.
