Developer: RV Park to Be ‘Good to the Environment’
A new motorcoach resort for up to 21 recreation vehicles is being planned for the western tip of North Carolina.
The site is on N.C. 106 in the Scaly Mountain area of Macon County, a project that developer and owner J.B. Corum is touting as earth friendly and good business, the Waynesville Smoky Mountain News reported.
Corum said he hoped other developers would realize that you could be “good to the environment” and still make money.
“It’s going to be done right, and I’m going to make reasonably good money off of it even then,” the Scaly Mountain resident told the Macon County Planning Board last week. The planning board unanimously approved Corum’s plans on the recommendation of County Planner Derek Roland.
“It’s a nice little place,” Roland said.
Corum has built a previous RV park just outside Dillard, Ga.
His newest project, Wildflower Creek Motor Coach Resort, will be built on 11.6 acres off Brown Lake Road. It will include a wetland area, which is to be donated to a conservation organization, a small pond and a community association building.
