itemonline.comA new application for a controversial RV park proposal along Hwy. 30 in Huntsville, Texas, is getting its look from the Huntsville City Council, according to The Item.

The city’s planning commission voted last month to deny a conditional use permit application for a 225-site RV park on land just past the Hwy. 30 post office after there were concerns with its location.

“The planning commission was concerned about the location of the proposed RV park being so close to IH-45 and being in the city limits. They would prefer it to be located in the ETJ or further out in Walker County where there is more rural, shaded and undeveloped land,” said city planner Armon Irones in the council notes for tonight’s meeting.

City officials also noted that sewer capacity is limited in the area due to an aging lift station. A new lifts station would take at least two years to complete.

The facility will also include 25 park model pads, a 4,500 square-foot clubhouse and a resort-style pool.
