As a housing shortage continues in Carlsbad, N.M., a new option is on its way for those looking for a place to live, the Carlsbad Current-Argus reported.
Joshua Moore, a local resident, received a temporary-use permit to build a new RV park at Tuesday’s (April 27) city council meeting.
Moore said in an interview that the park will be geared towards larger companies by having spaces that are 80 feet by 35 feet each. The whole park will have approximately 80 spots available.
He said the idea came to him when he was working on his other RV park called AOK RV Retreat, which is currently under construction and scheduled to open within the next month or so. He said AOK Retreat has smaller sites aimed at groups such as family and tourists.
Moore said multiple foremen from large companies approached him asking if he had larger spaces available, which made him decide to open another park, which he called an “RV park on steroids.”
City Councilwoman Janell Whitlock said that RV parks seem to be in popular demand in Carlsbad.
“We do get a lot of requests for people that are looking for an RV park that’s nice and developed well and I think this one would be a great asset,” she said about the upcoming park.
