Halifax Town Council to Decide on Proposed Toots Creek RV Park

Halifax Town Council (Virginia) is set to once again debate the possibility of a recreational vehicle park on Tuesday evening.

The council session begins at 7.30 p.m. at the Halifax Town Hall, following an earlier 6:30 p.m. work session.

As per a report, last month, council postponed decision on Toots Creek Antique Mall owner Dean Jones’ special use permit application for Toots Creek RV Park, after a public hearing at which Jones was in favor of the park while three others objected.

A roadblock is centered around the time limit for vehicles staying at the proposed park. It was reported that the Halifax Planning Commission recommended a three-month restriction for guests.

At a previous meeting, Jones demanded council members lift the restriction. He argued that guests who are contractors could be required to stay longer than three months or for a few years, based on the project they are working on.

“My market niche that I am wanting are solar project workers, pipeline and power plant workers, traveling nurses, workers that will be in the area while constructing buildings in our local industrial parks, and also workers that will come in when the new high school is being built,” Jones told council in March. “All of the above may be here months or years depending on the project.”

If Halifax decides not to remove the three-month limit, Jones declared in March that there would be no other option but to build the park in Halifax County instead. He claimed to have met with an official in the county who informed him that Halifax County doesn’t have a stay length limitation.

In April, Jones indicated he would accept a five-year time limit on guests’ stay at the RV park.
