Final Elements of Manitoba RV Park Endorsed
Work on a 225-site, upscale RV park near Gimli, Manitoba, may begin soon, after the council put the finishing touches on a development agreement, according to the Interlake Spectator, Gimli.
There were three outstanding matters to discuss:
- Ensuring that golf carts used in the RV park do not go outside the park and onto municipal roads.
- Ensuring there is access to a nearby rails-to-trails walking system.
- Answering the question about whether the developer should pay capital development levies.
The council decided, as part of its development agreement, it would require that Dave Hammond ensure people who lease seasonal spaces at his park are aware that taking golf carts off-site is not permitted. As well, the agreement will require the developer to have signage amplifying this restriction.
Chief administrative officer Joann King reported that Hammond has agreed to ensure access to the trails system, which is on the west side of his development. Property owners will be advised that they cannot put obstructions on the trail.
On whether Hammond is required to pay capital lot and drainage levies, King said those levies are not applicable because the developer is not subdividing the land and the lots are being leased not sold.
It’s expected the $3.5-million park will be phased in over a number of years.
