The new managers of Soledad Canyon RV & Camping Resort, a Thousand Trails park, pledged to be good neighbors during a presentation at last week’s Acton (Calif.) Town Council meeting, according to the Valley Press.

Jeff Kimes, vice president at Equity LifeStyle Properties Inc., which operates the campground, addressed community concerns and answered multiple questions from council member Jacki Ayer, who grilled Kimes on several issues.

“We’re about to engage in a multi-million renovation of the park. Part of that will include some lighting replacements and it will all be dark skies compliant, so we really want to be good neighbors,” Kimes said at the Oct. 21 meeting.

One of the primary ongoing concerns in the community are people who live at the campground, even though that is not allowed.

Thousand Trails is a membership-based campground. Members can stay up to 21 days before they have to leave. The concern is that some people might leave for a week, only to return for another three weeks. There is also a concern that children who stay at the park attend local schools.

“If there is a concern about families that are living there and sending kids to school in the local school district, that is something that you should get me some information about, because that is the kind of thing that we want to prevent,” Kimes said.
