Ohio Golf Course Might Turn Into An RV Park

Conducting a zoning meeting at a college campus isn’t par for the course in Huron Township, Ohio, but, according to officials, it’s a fair way to let everyone express their opinions before developers possibly transform an inactive golf course into a commercialized RV park, according to the Sandusky Register.

The township’s zoning appeals board members scheduled a special session to learn about a proposed 210-site RV park at the former Keys Golf Course & Driving Range on Boos Road.

Officials encourage community members to attend the meeting, scheduled for 7:30 p.m. Thursday, Dec. 13 at BGSU Firelands in George Mylander Hall.

“If the board of zoning appeals feels the use is appropriate in the neighborhood, they will require that the applicant file a complete site plan showing the final plan of the utilities, lighting, buffering, etc., at their next hearing,” township building official John Zimmerman said.

In May 2017, Duke Thorson — who owns ThorWorks Industries and ThorSport Racing, a Sandusky-headquartered professional race organization participating in NASCAR events — purchased the golf course property for $2.4 million. Since then, nobody has publicly golfed from this land, totaling about 48 acres.

Many people, namely those residing within Lakefield Manor and Pine Lake Condominiums, both on Bogart Road, oppose the project. Those representing the condominium associations recently circulated petitions to halt the project.
