Ariz. Officials Mulling Over 150-Site RV Subdivision

The La Paz County Board of Supervisors has approved a tentative map for the proposed Mountain View RV Resort in Salome, Ariz. The approval came at the board’s July 2 meeting following a public hearing where some residents of a nearby air park objected to the project, according to the Parker Pioneer.

Chairman and District Two Supervisor Duce Minor and District Three Supervisor Holly Irwin said this was just one step in the development process, and they hoped objections and concerns could be worked out as the process moved along.

Mountain View RV Resort is hoping to develop 150 RV sites for an RV subdivision on 154.86 acres at 65001 Hall Street in Salome.

One of the speakers at the public hearing portion of the meeting was Gary Hawkins, secretary/treasurer for Western Sky Air Park. He said this development will be right under their flight path and this would lead to noise issues.

Hawkins said the Federal Aviation Administration has recommended zoning be used to protect approaches to airports and to allow only activities that are compatible with airports. He said not allowing residential development would take care of the noise issues.

Hawkins also said there were many unused RV spots in the Salome area.

“We have 500 surplus RV spots in Salome,” he asked. “Why add more?”
