New rules halt RV park in Kings Mountain, N.C.

KINGS MOUNTAIN, N.C. — When Micheal Brown and his son, Preston Brown, look at the upturned red dirt and former mill buildings along the Raven Drive property, the Shelby Star describes they see a place where families can park their RVs and explore the great outdoors.

They want to build a recreational vehicle campground on Micheal Brown’s 57 acres of light-industrial property in Kings Mountain, but the recent approval of a Kings Mountain zoning ordinance text amendment intentionally makes their dreams of an RV park cost-prohibitive and nearly impossible, the Browns told the newspaper.

The Shelby Star reports the Kings Mountain City Council voted 5-2 at its last meeting to approve the text amendment, which increases the requirements for RV parks or campsites in city limits.
