FERNANDINA BEACH, Fla. — Plans for a new RV park in Fernandina Beach were presented at a special workshop last Tuesday at City Hall, but the audience – mostly residents with homes close to the proposed business – was less than enthusiastic, writes the Fernandina Beach News-Leader.
As a result, developer Bob Allison informed the city on Thursday he would seek another location for the proposed RV resort.
Parkview North residents complained about possible noise and the potential decline of property values. The proposed RV park would have been tucked into a partially wooded area between Canopy Drive and Amelia Island Parkway. Part of the Fernandina Beach Golf Club’s grounds would have been within the RV park area.
Allison’s plan was for approximately 150 sites in a 30-acre area that would be leased from the city at three percent of the RV park’s lease fees. According to Allison’s figures, a 60 percent occupancy rate would bring $77,000 in direct annual cash flow to the city, plus more than $100,000 in sales tax through local businesses, writes the Fernandina Beach News-Leader.
