Developers have received the go-ahead for their plan to build an RV campground on the east side of Grand Haven, Mich., the Grand Haven Tribune reported.
The Grand Haven Planning Commission approved the site plan during its most recent meeting. “It was a site plan review, so the next step would be to get permits,” city planner Jennifer Howland said.
The approved plan allows property owner Kris Fewless to construct an RV campground on the site of the former Eagle Ottawa Leather Co. tannery, at the north end of Beechtree Street and the east end of Fulton Avenue. It would have 150 sites along the Grand River.
Eagle Ottawa closed its operation in 2006 after more than a century of tanning hides along the Grand River.
The initial plans for the nearly 20-acre site call for sites with full utility hookups, an office area, a children’s recreational area and a pool. The campground would also maintain access to the river for its guests. There’d be a walkway along the water and internal pedestrian access, and floating docks.
