City Council members in Beeville, Texas, voted Jan. 24 to stop construction on recreational vehicle parks until legal questions have been answered regarding a current city ordinance on such facilities.

The city in south Texas has seen at least 14 new RV parks spring up in the past year as workers come here to work in oil and gas exploration.

“This don’t fit, people. It just don’t fit,” resident Glenn Slayton told the city council.

Slayton was complaining about an RV park being built near the Ellwood Terrace Subdivision where he and his wife, Diane, have a home, reported.

Complaints from Slayton and two other city residents about RV parks being built within the city limits prompted the council to call for a halt to the construction until the city ordinance can be researched to determine if the parks going in are legal or if they violate the ordinance.

“It’s not next to my neighborhood. It’s not behind my neighborhood. It’s part of my neighborhood,” Slayton said. “It just don’t fit.”
