Elkhorn Lake‘s owners are one step closer to expanding their campground, according to a report.
Green Genie Inc. is seeking to rezone almost 214 acres from R-1 Residential Suburban to A-1 Agricultural District.
Per the Pittsylvania County Code, camping grounds are permitted only by a special use permit in an Agricultural District. They’ll still need the Pittsylvania County Board of Zoning Appeals to grant this permit before the campground can be expanded.
County planners claim the campground is located near properties already classified as agricultural districts, and the rezoning will be compatible with the county’s Comprehensive Plan.
The Pittsylvania County Planning Commission voted unanimously to endorse approval of the rezoning.
