County Considering RV Park Safety Regulations

North Carolina’s Polk County has two unzoned townships where literally anything goes, but after looking at possible amendments to its road naming and addressing ordinance, commissioners are now considering adding safety regulations to campgrounds and RV parks in the unzoned areas, such as properly naming lots.

According to the Tryon Daily Bulletin, commissioners met Feb. 5 and heard from County Attorney Jana Berg. Berg said if there is a campground, RV park or travel trailer site with lots of units, the county may want to make sure first responders can find the lot easily.

Berg suggested the county require that lots be numbered and that roads are made so emergency vehicles can safely enter and exit the lots.

Commissioner Ray Gasperson said he hadn’t thought about campgrounds in the unzoned areas of the county, but somebody could just set up a campground and there are no standards.
