Texas Group Could Seek Referendum on RV Park Plan
A group of Kingsville, Texas, residents who oppose the location of a planned RV park next to their neighborhood has told city officials they will seek a referendum if the city council doesn't change its mind.
Some city leaders like the idea of the park along U.S. Highway 77 because it could help Kingsville capitalize on Winter Texan traffic. But residents of the South Creek subdivision worry the park will spoil their view, lead to more wrecks on the highway and pose safety risks for children in nearby Kleberg Park, the Corpus Christi Caller Times reported.
The council approved a zoning change earlier this month to clear the way for developer Ralph Ambrose to build the RV park.
The opposing group, led by South Creek resident Lance Hamm, made a filing Tuesday (June 14), asking the council to reconsider. If the council doesn't reconsider, the group could trigger an election on the zoning issue by gathering petition signatures.
