CAPE CORAL, Fla. — On Monday, the Cape Coral City Council voted to allow recreational vehicle parks in the city, paving the way for a nearly 200 acre luxury RV resort, writes The News-Press.
The News-Press says council voted to establish a land use classification for the parks and set the minimum guidelines for projects. The only RV park in the pipeline is The Resort at Tranquility Lake, a 188-acre site off Burnt Store Road.
The proposed resort, estimated to cost between $27 million and $30 million, will feature 250 lodging sites, an 87-acre lake, several pools, restaurants, a clubhouse and spa, mini golf, dog parks and other recreational options, writes The News-Press.
To avoid smaller, less-desirable parks, council members adopted several proposed changes to the ordinance, including a minimum size of 75 acres and a maximum lodging time of six months, reports The News-Press.
