La. Parish Considers RV Zoning Change
Calcasieu Parish (La.) Police Jurors are considering a new proposal brought on by the increase of industrial projects headed to the lake area, TV station KPLC reported.
"We noticed in 2013 that there was a pretty big rise of recreational vehicle parks that came to the police jury for rezoning and we just felt like it was time for us to look at that and see if we needed to have tougher standards," said Jennifer Wallace, assistant director of advanced planning and grants.
Some of the new proposed standards range from the size of the lots for RV spaces, to the number of RVs that can be within a spot, and different standards for rural and suburban areas.
Currently, recreational vehicles and manufactured home parks fall under the same zoning classification. But the potential new standards could change that.
"Now it's going to require a separate zoning classification so if you want to have an RV park, we'll zone it to an RV park versus a mobile home park," said Director of Planning and Development, Wes Crain.
But for those already established, parish officials said it's no change.
