Meeting To Discuss Proposed RV Park In Md.
A public meeting was to be held today (Dec. 28) at the Ocean Pines Library in Berlin, Md., to discuss a proposed campground that would occupy the former location of Pine Shore Golf Course along Route 611, according to a report by DelmarvaNow.com.
Those who are opposed to the project fear the proposed campsite and its 311 spots for RVs would negatively impact the local environment surrounding Ayres Creek, as well as traffic along Route 611.
“The citizens of Worcester County did not sign up to have their area become the RV capital of Maryland,” said Joan Jenkins, a Berlin resident and an organizer of the fight against the proposed campground.
The meeting is being organized by Donald Bounds, a Berlin resident who is also concerned about the proposed campground.
He is concerned about the amount of traffic the RVs coming into the proposed campground would cause as well as the safety for bicyclists and people using other motorized vehicles in the area, he said.
Worcester County Director of Environmental Programs Bob Mitchell said three requests have been filed regarding the property and the land currently occupied by the old Pine Shores Golf Club is zoned for estate, all by Todd Burbage and Hugh Cropper.
