A former Yurt Resort at the Lake in Camden County, Mo., is likely going to be redeveloped, but it’s not clear what kind of use the county will allow.
According to lakeexpo.com, Raymond Anderson originally requested the rezoning on the 31-acre property for the purpose of developing an RV park. Since Anderson purchased the property from former owner Larry Owens, he has been cleaning up trash and yurts off the property for six months.
The county says Owens (who also owned Casa de Loco Winery, which recently sold and is being rejuvenated as Shawnee Bluff Winery on the Niangua) erected 10 yurts on the property without obtaining the proper P-2 Commercial Parks zoning required for this type of commercial activity.
The P&Z Commission denied Owens’ request for P-2 Commercial Parks Zoning for the yurt complex in 2015, after neighbors voiced their opposition to the resort.
