Texas Council Creates An RV Park Zoning District

With various construction projects as well as year-round outdoor tourism, lots at Early, Texas, RV parks are in demand – prompting a recent move by the city council, according to the Brownwood Bulletin.

Early city councilmen unanimously approved creating a category of zoning districts specific to RV parks and tailored after the city’s two preeminent RV parks.

“The city staff has been working on a new zone that we would like to have added to our zone of ordinances,” assistant city administrator Larry McConn said. “We’re calling it RVD for RV park district. We had some discussion with the two current RV parks we have “J’s” on the east end of town and “Harlowe’s” right there in the center of town. We really modeled what they’re doing already into this zone.”

McConn said the decision to create an RV zoning district came not as a response to issues with its current parks but as a response to growing demand. Under its previous zoning ordinance a developer could establish an RV park anywhere within Early city limits zoned for commerce.

Other provisions in the ordinance require roads capable of supporting fire and emergency medical service vehicles and creating a buffer zone between adjoining properties.
