County Says 18′ Isn’t Wide Enough for Park Entry
The Limestone County, Ala., leaders did not give a developer variance approval for a proposed 16-lot recreational vehicle subdivision at Monday’s (Aug. 16) county commission meeting, The Decatur Daily reported.
The developer asked for a variance to keep the road 18 feet wide. The county’s subdivision regulations require 22 feet.
The Limestone County Commission voted unanimously to require that Lakeshore RV Resorts developer Joel Wilson III work out an agreement to widen the private road that is the only entrance and exit to Bay Village developments in Athens.
The developments are on the Elk River.
County Engineer Richard Sanders said Lucy’s Branch LLC owns Bay Village Drive and allows Bay Hill residents use of the road. Chairman David Seibert said that for the residents’ safety, the road should be widened to accommodate RVs.
The developer will have to return to the commission with an agreement to get subdivision approval.
