“. . . A developer from Tribute Development and Investment, based in Wilmington, has plans to build a 343-unit RV park on the [Etowah] golf course, which has been in business since 1967. The developer will be seeking a special-use permit at the 4 p.m. May 31 Henderson County Zoning Board of Adjustment meeting, which is scheduled to be held at the King Street Meeting Room located at 100 North King St.
Members of the Etowah’s Reach Property Owners Association are against the developer’s plans, and Garnett said many are planning to be at the May 31 meeting in hopes of getting the proposal rejected. . .
‘The golf course is the heart and soul of Etowah,’ Etowah resident Debbie Rowe told the Times-News last week. ‘The new owners are trying to turn it into a 343-space RV park, with no paved roads, no paved pads and with roads that can’t support a 30,000-pound RV. We don’t need any more RV parks. There are already five in the area.’
According to Henderson Business and Community Development Director Chris Todd, there are currently 16 RV parks in the county.
According to the proposal by Tribute, the recreational vehicle spaces “shall be a minimum of 2,000 square feet and shall have dimensions no less than 40 feet by 50 feet.” The current property owners are WNC Resort Properties and have worked on a contract with Tribute Development, which is proposing a renovated 18-hole golf course and the RV park. . .”
