New Nebraska RV Park Plan Gets Preliminary OK
Ryan Steele of Precision Enterprise in Springfield, Neb., has been recommended approval of a conditional-use permit (CUP) on the former Countrywide Yacht Club and Marina land in Washington County. The Washington County Planning Commission voted during its meeting Thursday night (Jan. 5), the Washington County Pilot-Tribune & Enterprise reported.
The CUP provides for 78 individual RV sites and a sign. Steele’s original requests for the CUP included a convenience store, future site expansion, and storage for RVs during the off season.
The commission deemed there to be a lack of clarity on a number of the proposed developments, and suggested Steele return for a phase-two CUP.
“Your first priority was to get these 77 or 78 lots included in this area, and so I’m going to call that phase one,” commissioner Lyle Schjodt said. “Everything else that was suggested — the convenience store, the other lots and the storage — will not be included in this CUP. There are additional things that you need to further develop, come back to the board and the commission, and be more specific on where they would be what they would be.”
Steele hopes to eventually expand the sites from the approved 78 to approximately 125.
“Long term, we can’t make this work with 78 spots,” Steele said. “We need to be able to expand, but I understand there are processes to these things.”
Steele’s plans for the RV complex do not include having year-round residents. Each camper would be expected to clear out in the off season.
The recommendation still needs approval from the county board of supervisors.
