County Commissioners | Sumter County, FL - Official WebsiteIn a rare denial of a land-use application, Sumter County (Fla.) commissioners Tuesday (Feb. 22) rejected a plan for a luxury RV park on the west side of State Road 471 near Webster, according to Villages-News.com.

After an hour-long public hearing, three commissioners voted unanimously to deny a comprehensive plan amendment and did not consider a related zoning change for the park.

The plan by Annie MEH, Inc., represented by Lenteisa Hill, a U.S. Navy veteran with a master’s degree in engineering, called for 108 RV campsites, 10 tent sites, 10 treehouse cabins and 105 storage units on 38 acres. The project also would include laser tag and golf simulator amenities, an office and a meeting hall.

Located about three-quarters of a mile from the urban service boundary, the park would include on-site sewer and water facilities. Hill pledged to connect to municipal sewer and water when it becomes available.
