A North Truro (Mass.) Zoning Board of Appeals decision has been annulled but a new agreement requiring a private campground to repair land it bulldozed in 2016 and limit campsite use has been signed, according to Wicked Local.

At the same time, the sewer and utility installation that the campground — Horton’s Camping Resort — wanted all along will move ahead, with limitations, as part of the agreement.

On Nov. 16 a Barnstable Superior Court judge approved the agreement by the town of Truro and A/C Mobile Home Park, Inc., a Florida company that owns Hortons, which is located on contiguous land off South Highland Road and Old Dewline Road. The campground has 218 campsites on 32 acres, all within the boundaries of the Cape Cod National Seashore.

The judge’s approval comes after five years of regulatory dispute and court filings involving the campground owners, the town of Truro, the Seashore and the state Division of Fisheries and Wildlife. The judge’s approval on Nov. 16 resolves the issues between the town of Truro and the campground only.

“I’m glad that a resolution was reached,” said Truro Select Board Chairman Robert Weinstein Monday (Nov. 29).
