During a work session Wednesday (Jan. 24) night Alamosa, Colo., city councilors appeared receptive to a proposal to locate an RV resort by the Cattails Golf Course.

They spoke with developers interested in purchasing about 35 acres of city ranch property to combine with about 30 acres of private property to host a 500-site resort, according to the Valley Courier.

The council has not yet made any decisions on selling the property or approving the RV resort, and Alamosa City Manager Heather Brooks said she wanted the process to be as public and transparent as possible. She stressed there will be ample opportunity for the public to have input.

As a next step, city staff will likely solicit proposals from anyone interested in purchasing and developing that same property, and the city will have the property appraised.

The proposed RV resort would be a membership resort where RV’ers would buy into the resort for about $5,000 (plus annual renewals and maintenance fees) with options to also become members of the Coast to Coast network of campgrounds and resorts, Coast to Coast President Bruce Hoster explained. Members could then stay at an RV resort for free if it was their home park or about $10 a night for up to two weeks at a time.

He said having a resort next to the golf course, as this one would be, would be a unique selling point, and developers hope to work with the golf board to incorporate golf club memberships into the resort membership.
