Calif. City Gets Return on Upscale RV Park
The new upscale recreational vehicle parking taking shape in Red Bluff, Calif., has been cause for comment and some mild concern in recent days, according to the Red Bluff Daily News.
The “Big Rig Friendly” Durango RV Resorts will have 175 spaces and be able to accommodate the largest motorcoaches made. Developer is GMB Realty Partners of Oakland, and the firm has been working with the city of Red Bluff for more than two years to come up with an acceptable project.
Planning Director Scot Timboe said they have it, and the city is getting considerable return for it, including developed walking and bike riding trails along the river and under the Interstate 5 bridge to the east where the developer will be giving land to the city in perpetuity for a park.
Additionally, the project has resulted in major cleanup of the area under and near the bridge, including the hauling away of literally tons of trash and debris, much of it left by transients who often camp or sleep in the area.
After a story about the park appeared in the Daily News last week, several people expressed concerns about how the park would be accessed.
Site preparation for the project is well under way. Unlike most commercial development, there will not be the construction of many buildings. There is, of course, paving, perimeter walls and landscaping. If all permitting goes as anticipated, the developers would like to have it open by the end of the year.
