A luxury RV park came one step closer to reality, despite a marathon meeting of the Nassau County (Fla.) Board of County Commissioners, in which more than 20 people spoke out against it, according to the News-Leader.
The BOCC considered approval of the final development plan for Breakers RV Resort, filed by Intact Construction, developer Gillette and Associates and the property owner, Ben Buchanan and his representative, John Laserre. The property, located on the southwest corner of Sadler and Ryan roads, was rezoned in February 2022 from single family to Commercial General, or CG. Travel trailer parks and campgrounds are a permitted use in CG.
The meeting room of BOCC was filled to capacity, and the overflow of people speaking on the matter had to be put in the hallway of the building. Of all those who spoke, just one person supported the RV park. The crowd became more restless as the meeting progressed, with county commissioners and the county clerk threatening those in chambers with expulsion if they did not quiet down.
