Spotsylvania Planning Commission Recommends Denial of Proposed 300-Site RV Park

A planned RV park near Lake Anna has received a thumbs down from the Spotsylvania County (Virginia) Planning Commission.

The commission recommended the denial of a special-use permit for the RV park with 300 sites at last week’s meeting. 

According to a report, last Wednesday’s vote came after a public hearing which was extended to three separate meetings due to the amount of citizen feedback and letters sent to the county.

The project now falls to the Board of Supervisors, which will have the final say on the plan. The board isn’t planning to take action until after the February 15 special election to fill the spot of late Supervisor Barry Jett, who represented the Livingston District where the RV park is planned to be.

The plan requires a special-use permit for an outdoor recreation and camping site that includes recreational vehicle sites, as well as other amenities, including amphitheaters and a pool located on 135 acres along Lake Anna.

In their comments over the three separate meetings, the residents raised their concerns about the park’s impact on the lake and surrounding property. They are also concerned that the park may cause issues for boating safety and traffic, in addition to the park being opposite to the region’s rural character.

The planning staff of Spotsylvania recommended that the request for a permit be rejected and added that should the commission recommend approval, a set of conditions totaling 35 must be required.

These conditions include limiting the development to 300 campsites without any being used for permanent stays, limiting the number of boat slips, as well as other requirements related to sewage, water quality, and traffic impact.
