Texas RV Park Developer Takes Plans to City Hall Today

September 17, 2009 by   - () 1 Comment

A preliminary plat for Old River RV Resort near Center Point, Texas, will be up for discussion during the city of Kerrville Planning and Zoning Commission meeting today (Sept. 17).

The site lies within an unincorporated area of the county, as well as the city’s extraterritorial jurisdiction, according to the Kerrville Daily Times.

Roughly a half mile is riverfront property, according to developer Dick Colvin.

He told Kerr County commissioners in May that plans for the commercial venture included individual lot sales and leases, a 7,000-square-foot clubhouse, boat dock, two swimming pools, laundry facilities and asphalt or naturally paved roads with concrete curbing.

Colvin also said there would be plenty of green space and recreational opportunities, including hiking trails, picnic and barbecue areas, gazebos, fishing spots and putting greens.

Since the concept plan and initial preliminary plat was submitted in July, the engineering firm handling the project — Vordenbaum Engineering — requested the project be reviewed as a condominium in accordance with city subdivision regulations.

But P&Z documents indicated the basic concept of the project remains the same.

Water and wastewater service will be provided through private community systems.

The preliminary plan does not address storm water and storm drainage; storm water detention and a detailed drainage study is required, however, according to the city’s Design Manual for Storm Drainage Facilities.

Also, portions of the proposed development are within the floodplain and floodway. Before the final plat could be reviewed or accepted, a Letter of Map Revision is needed from the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA).

Although the property is subject to the city’s subdivision regulations, the developer also will have to submit for review and consideration a preliminary plat, with any needed variances, to the county.

    This sounds like a great Texas Campgrounds. I have heard Dick Colvin has previously develop some great new infrastructure in Central Texas, so I am really looking forward for this next project that he has.
