Officials approve plans for new RV park in Arizona

CORDES JUNCTION, Ariz. — The Yavapai County Planning and Zoning Commission approved plans Wednesday for a 27-site RV park to be located less than a mile from the intersection of Highway 69 and Interstate 17.

The park is being developed by Sam and Tina Knoy of Prescott.

One neighbor who lives next to the campground told commissioners he concerned with how much water the RV campground would use, the Daily Courier reported. Dave Hamernick said the 27 campers would cause a “substantial increase in water withdrawal” that is not sustainable.  And, as usually happens at such meetings, another neighbor objected to the park saying it “might” eventually become “a lot of dumpy trailers.”
