Controversial Utah RV Park Gains Initial Approval (3/15/2019)

Story by Woodall's Campground Management

A proposed RV park in Veyo, Utah, is causing unease for a group of concerned citizens who claim the venture isn't following county code and will cause long-term issues in their rural community. 

As reported by The Spectrum,The Washington County Planning Commission approved a conditional use permit for the rural recreation ground — a project headed by Pine Valley Mountain Recreation LLC and Slade Hughes. 

Hughes, who owns several businesses in Veyo, plans to turn a parcel of land on north Cottam Ranch Road in Veyo into a recreation ground designed for 128 RV spaces, nine cabin sites and 10 tent sites, to be completed in several phases. 

Hughes is also a member of the planning commission and because of the conflict of interest had to recuse himself from the discussion and vote.

Three planning commission members voted "nay" on the project, citing several issues relating to utility use, water use and density.
