Nevada RV Park Gets Zoning Approval
The Clark County, Nev., Board of Commissioners unanimously approved a request from Mohave State Bank for a rezone of 22.1 acres in Laughlin, adjacent to Laughlin Bay Marina, to permit the development of a 222-site RV park, the Laughlin Times reported.
Documentation submitted in support of the application indicates plans for the RV park to be built in two phases: The first will be constructed in the interior area of the property near the clubhouse, and the second will include RV sites up to the Casino Drive frontage. The sole vehicle entry and exit point will be the existing entrance to Laughlin Bay Marina from Needles Highway, although emergency access will be available from Casino Drive.
The site had once been approved for 500+ condominium units. However, that project failed and the land is now owned by the bank.
Opposing the project was Charles Grimes, a resident of Laughlin who voiced his objection during the January meeting of the Laughlin Town Advisory Board and who traveled to Las Vegas on three separate occasions to testify against the plan.
Grimes argued that the existence of large RVs controlled by what he referred to as transient drivers would, “change our area’s residential and conservative quality.” He also opined that, “RV zoning would corrupt surrounding property values.”
Christopher Kaempfer, representing one of the applicants, said, “While we certainly very much respect his right to object, I would like to say that his objection is based on his obviously good-faith — but still mistaken — belief that this is primarily a residential area in Laughlin.”
Each RV space will measure 30-by-65 feet and contain full RV hookups. Three stand-alone restroom facilities will be constructed, and the existing clubhouse – which will serve as the park’s check-in office – will house laundry, bathroom and shower facilities.
