RV Park is Proposed for Nevada Marina
An application to rezone 21 acres adjacent to Laughlin Bay Marina to allow for the construction of a 222-space recreational vehicle park is moving its way quickly through Clark County’s processes, although not without some opposition.
The Laughlin Nevada Times reported that the application came before the Laughlin Town Advisory Board at its Jan. 14 meeting. Specifically, Mohave State Bank – which has held the property since the previous owners, CRM Colorado River Marina, deeded it back – and developer Richard Callagy of Edgewater Development in Henderson are requesting a reclassification of the zoning designation from H-1 (Limited Resort and Apartment) to R-V-P (Recreational Vehicle Park).
“This is actually considered a down zoning of the parcel,” pointed out Laughlin Community Development Manager Deborah Murray.
The bank and Callagy are requesting, also, that the county waive its development standards, to take into account the height of the already-existing clubhouse: In an RVP designation, the maximum building height is 35 feet, and the clubhouse roofline measures 36.5 feet.
The property was previously approved by the county for 500-plus condominium units, pointed out Joe Thomason of Thomason Consulting, who added that the project will be built in two phases: The first will be constructed in the interior area of the property near the clubhouse, and the second phase will include RV sites up to the Casino Drive frontage. At this point in time, the sole entry and exit point will be the existing entrance to Laughlin Bay Marina from Needles Highway, although emergency access is available from Casino Drive.
