Montana RV Park Proposal Considered

November 25, 2013 by   - () 1 Comment

A Kalispell, Mont., couple have plans to develop a 62-space recreational vehicle park at Columbia Heights.

Toby and Jessica Gilchrist are seeking preliminary approval for Glacier Gateway RV Resort, planned on 13.3 acres about one mile north of the intersection of Montana 206 and U.S. 2 E. Monte Vista Way borders the property, the Daily Inter Lake reported.

The project is undergoing planning review as a subdivision for lease or rent. The property is zoned scenic corridor and would be served by public water and sewer systems, according to the application.

The developers want permission to exempt the Gilchrists from paving internal roads at the RV park, although the private-access drive would be paved. A dust-control plan indicates the owners would enforce slow speeds and provide water, magnesium chloride, oils or other approved measures to control dust.

The Gilchrists also are asking for a variance to a condition requiring a 15-foot easement adjacent to U.S. 2 because there’s an existing home in that area. The Montana Department of Transportation is willing to grant an easement for a path between the home and U.S. 2, according to planning documents.

    Columbia Falls RV Park has added new big rig sites and redone all the rest. The restrooms are redone and laundry. Lots of changes going on. I am working on building a 300 site part west of Kalispell
