Texas City Moves Closer to OK’ing New RV Park
Lufkin, Texas, is one step closer to a new RV park, after city council members unanimously approved a zoning change and special use permit for its creation during their meeting Tuesday (Aug. 3), the Lufkin Daily News reported.
According to City Manager Paul Parker, Dave Overdorf, who plans to open the park, is prepared to comply with the city’s guidelines for an RV park.
“This will be good for all of us,” said Mayor Jack Gorden.
Overdorf plans to open the park on property on Davisville Road, adjacent to the Southern Stables Bed and Breakfast.
“I’m an RV fan, and there’s not a real nice RV park within 100 miles,” Overdorf said in a previous Lufkin Daily News article. “I thought it would be nice if we didn’t have to travel so far.”
Council members will hold a second reading for the park’s zoning and special use permit before Overdorf can proceed with opening the park. Once the second reading is completed, however, he is prepared to break ground.
