The inital plans for the proposed Preservation Point RV Resort

Inverness, Fla., city officials are putting out the welcome mat to a proposed 206-acre upscale RV park and its owner is asking to be annexed into the city, according to the Citrus County Chronicle

John Eden, an Inverness attorney and owner of the proposed 439-lot RV and pull-trailer site that borders Lake Spivey on the east, asked the Inverness City Council this week to annex the land.

“I’d much rather deal with city hall than with county government. You never know who you’re going to talk to when you go there,” said the sixth-generation Citrus County resident.

Citrus County officials recently approved the project, now inside the county, for a motorcoach resort, so the only question is whether the project will be inside the city, Eden told the council during his presentation.

“We’re very well vested in the community,” Eden said, trying to assure the council the resort at 8588 E. State Road 44 would be beneficial to the city.

The council appeared persuaded.

“I don’t see a downside to this,” said Councilman David Ryan.

Council President Linda Bega agreed.

“It’s a nice compliment to what the city is looking for,” Bega said.

The current design of the Preservation Point RV Resort project includes a wooded buffer and nature trails around most of the proposed developed areas. It also identifies a multipurpose clubhouse that could include a general store, indoor bowling alley, theater and meeting rooms.

The current design also includes a swimming pool, room for golf, shuffleboard and tennis.
