Pa. Lake Community Fights for Park Model Use
The Lake Adventure Community Association (LACA), representing a campsite development in Milford, Pa., is taking on the local township again with regard to placement of 12-foot-wide park models.
As reported by the Pike County Courier, in a recent statement to the press, the association said it has been requesting for the last year, that Dingman Township officials recognize one-piece 12-foot-wide recreational vehicle park trailers as a natural expansion of recreational vehicles for placement in Lake Adventure.
Since Lake Adventure’s inception in the early 1970’s, park models equipped with a full slideout have been placed in the community. Prior to 2010, Dingman Township did not require any placement permits for any type of recreational vehicle or recreational vehicle park trailer in Lake Adventure.
Despite what the release claims has been Lake Adventure’s best efforts to provide Dingman Township with voluminous and adequate documentation that one-piece 12-foot-wide recreational vehicles are now standard in the camping industry, and better for the community as a whole, Dingman Township continues to prevent the placement.
“As with the last instance, the latest news release from Lake Adventure Community Association misses the point,” according to a statement in response from the Dingman Township Supervisors.
“LACA has never applied for an amendment to its zoning/subdivision and land development approval to include these newer non-travel trailer types of units. They have been told repeatedly that this is the proper procedure and they refuse to do so. Although the township has attempted to negotiate LACA has not even responded to our letters and it is clear that this process has been abandoned by them.”
