RV Park and Campground Briefs
From the Burnet Bulletin:
The Llano County Commissioners Court Monday (Feb. 13) tabled a decision that might have prevented a new RV park in Kingsland.
Wayne Correll of Houston recently purchased the land at 7300 River Oaks Drive and proposed a 17-space RV and camping park. The park would be located near the Kingsland Slab and would be called the Kingsland Slab RV Camp, according to Correll.
The problem, according to Llano County Judge Wayne Brascom, is that the three most premium spaces are seven feet below the 100-year floodplain.
Correll applied for a variance to be allowed to provide the spaces below the base flood elevation. He also applied for a variance for the county to allow him a sewer transfer tank with a sewage pump and to allow for only 24-foot-wide streets rather than the county required 28-foot-wide streets.
All the variances were considered by the commissioners Monday.
From the Pensacola News Journal:
Pensacola attorney and developer Jim Reeves is challenging an Escambia County agency's order to remove discolored sand from the site of an RV park he's building on Pensacola Beach.
Under an ordinance aimed at protecting the white-sand beach, county code enforcement has ordered the top two feet of discolored sand removed and and hauled off the island without spilling a grain.
Reeves says the order is too heavy-handed and will add $100,000 to his $2.4 million project.
Today (Feb. 14), Pensacola attorney William Bond will mediate the dispute during a session in the commission chambers of the Escambia County Governmental Complex. The session is open to the public.
The mediation is not binding; county commissioners would have to sign off on any deal. If no settlement is reached, commissioners ultimately will make the final decision.
