Zoners Against Proposed Campground

The Clarksville, Mo., planning and zoning committee recommended against an RV park-campground across from the Apple Shed at a Thursday, (Jan. 16) meeting, the Press-Journal of Louisiana, Mo., reported.

But aldermen could still approve the park, an ordinance to regulate it and a zoning change from residential to commercial to accommodate the project.

Bill and Linda Blakey want to purchase a city lot for the project next to one they already own. They also must get the zoning changed to make it a reality.

But the planning and zoning committee made it clear that their vote came because of major perceived problems.

“There’s just numerous concerns,” said committee member Susan Richardson. “There’s the question of how long people will stay.”

Other concerns included the project’s impact on town aesthetics as visitors pull into town from the south, noise levels and the effects on nearby residences. It could also lower property values for adjacent homeowners, Richardson said.

“Who would maintain the peace between the people staying there?” asked committee member Erin Garrison. “The police? The Blakeys?”
