RV Park and Campground Briefs
From Access North Georgia:
A California man was crushed to death Sunday (Dec. 4) while working on his truck at Loud Mine RV Park west of Cleveland, Ga.
White County Coroner Ricky Barrett says 57-year-old Frank Rober Baker of Avalon, Calif., was under the truck working on the emergency brake when the jack he was using to lift the vehicle started to slide in the soft dirt. That caused the vehicle to fall on him.
The accident happened around 5 p.m.
The town is located approximately 50 miles north of Atlanta.
From The Boston Globe:
The New Hampshire parks advisory council will discuss the park system’s performance at its meeting this week.
The council is meeting Friday (Dec. 9) at Hampton Beach State Park to discuss the 2011 season and to receive a report from a sub-committee on legislation. Members also plan to discuss how others can help the parks system.
The New Hampshire Division of Parks and Recreation manages 92 properties, including state parks, beaches, campgrounds, historic sites, trails, waysides and natural areas.
From the Dickinson Press:
A change to a zoning ordinance could keep campgrounds in Dickinson from becoming crew camps, officials said Friday (Dec. 2).
The Dickinson City Commission will review an ordinance prepared by City Attorney Matthew Kolling that will add two paragraphs to the “Supplement Use Regulations: Commercial Use” city code. The first reading of the ordinance is scheduled for today at the 4:30 p.m. commission meeting at City Hall.
The code will include language that prohibits temporary lodging on campgrounds within agricultural zones for more than 14 days, Kolling said. Campgrounds wishing to allow lodging for longer than 14 days will be required to obtain a crew housing special use permit.
“It is designed to prevent our campgrounds from becoming man camps,” Kolling said.
Commissioner Gene Jackson said the ordinance change stems from campers parking on streets in town. He wasn’t sure if the revisions would be passed as written, but he stated it is necessary.
