City officials and business owners formally inaugurated the construction of a new RV park in Parowan (Utah) that will accommodate over 130 recreational vehicles.
As per a report, the park dubbed Painted Hills RV Resort will be constructed on a 30-acre parcel located at 68 South. 1200 West just south of Interstate 15.
On Monday afternoon, owners KC Jones, Scott Fotheringham, and Seth Fotheringham were joined by Parowan Mayor Mollie Halterman for the ceremonial turnover of one of the first shovelfuls of dirt even as massive pieces of earth-moving equipment rattled behind them.
Jones stated that they hope to see the first stage of construction completed by August.
“We really do need to try to get it open to get some good months in the summer and fall before winter hits,” he said. “We’ll be open year-round, but it obviously gets a lot slower during the winter.”
Jones presented a short outline of the project’s two phases.
“The first phase will have 68 RV pads,” he said. “Phase 2 will include more amenities, like a pool. We’re going to do cabins, a pavilion for family reunions, and pickleball courts. We’re going to build those in Phase 2. And then depending upon how Phase 1 goes, it’ll dictate how many other RV pads we do, but we could double the number of the RV pads.”
Each pad space will come with electrical and water connections, WiFi access, and a sewer dump, Jones said.
“It’s just going to be state of the art,” he said. “It’s going to be what people need when they’re out and about.”
Halterman expressed excitement about the economic benefits that the RV tourists will bring to the town.
