The Chino Valley, Ariz., town council on Thursday (July 22) will consider whether to approve rezoning 17 acres on the municipality’s north side for the construction of a future Kampgrounds of America Inc. (KOA) RV campground.

The council will likely decide if the property should be rezoned from commercial light/agricultural residential 5-acre minimum to commercial heavy, the Daily Courier, Prescott, reported.

The land, owned by Jack Tuls Jr. of JT Properties, sits on the south side of East Road 3-1/2 North, about 400 feet east of Highway 89.

Charlie Arnold of Bright Star Communities is applying for the KOA project, which forms one of three adjacent pieces in the proposed 58-acre High Plains Development. This particular KOA site would contain 32 cabins and 119 RV campsites.

On May 6, planning and zoning commissioners voted unanimously to recommend the rezoning for the KOA to the council. However, because of several written protests from the community, three-fourths of the seven-member council must agree to the rezone for it to move forward.
