Burnett County Board of Supervisors approved a temporary moratorium on conditional permit applications for new campgrounds. This was in response to the fact that the issue has become highly contentious and people are looking for ways to enjoy the outdoors during this pandemic.

Craig Conroy, District 19 County Supervisor, spoke at the board’s monthly meeting on July 22. He explained why the Land Use and Information Committee wanted to extend the moratorium. They are continuing their investigation into the matter. The Supv. Conroy pointed out that the LUI committee meets almost every week over the past few months as they examine the positives and the negatives of campground expansion and the increasing popularity of this option in Burnett County.

It was generally agreed that it was a good idea. There were a few supervisors who hoped they would extend it due to the flood of applications recently received, which included a mention from Supv. James Pearson reported that the Town had received a request for a new 180-site RV camping area in just a few days.

Pearson stated, “It seems that everybody wants a campsite now.”

Nearly the entire board voted to extend the moratorium by three more months. This is in the hopes that the final recommendation from the committee will be available for action by all members of the board in time for any actions or changes after the moratorium expires.

Amended Moratorium on Campgrounds will allow the County Board to extend the moratorium for three more months. It expires in October 2021. Officially, the extension of the moratorium is “… in order to allow proper consideration and implementation by the relevant standing committees of the recommendations from the LUI Campground Work Group.”
