New Virginia Campground Gets Initial Nod
The Page County Board of Supervisors unanimously approved a rezoning to allow a 100-site campground on 18 acres off U.S. 211 West, two miles west of Luray, Va. The town is located west of Shenandoah National Park in northern Virginia.
The campground would hold 20 tent camping sites, 30 lean-to cabins, 10 motorcycle pads and 40 facilities for recreational vehicles, according to documents from the owners, Yvonne and Tom Berozoski of Ashburn, Va., the Rocktown Weekly, Harrisonburg, Va., reported.
The Berozoskis sought a zone change from residential to agricultural. The area must be rezoned before the owners can apply for a special-use permit to have a campground because campgrounds are not permitted within residential zoning.
Prior to the Feb. 19 meeting, comments submitted showed that neighbors fear increased noise and traffic from live bands, more vehicles and motorcycles, as well as a rise in pollution and trash from the campsite.
