Upscale Texas RV Park Plan Scrapped; Site Going to Auction
With plans scrapped for a high-end RV park on 102 acres beside the Guadalupe River in Kerr County, Texas, a June 28 auction is planned to sell the parcel on Texas 27 near the Scheiner Field airport, the San Antonio Express reported.
“We've had some great interest,” said Craig Buford of the Oklahoma auction firm Eddie Haynes Inc., which held an open house Sunday (June 12) at the parcel owned by First Victoria National Bank.
Two years ago, developer Richard Colvin pursued plans to construct Old River Road RV Resort there featuring a clubhouse, restaurant and 280 lots of about a quarter-acre each that would be priced at $100,000 and up.
“We just never could get any financing for it,” Colvin said Wednesday.
The project was opposed by members of Kerr County Conscience, a citizens group that criticized the development as inappropriate for the riverside parcel due to concerns about flooding, pollution and traffic.
