Proposals to convert a former business into an Airbnb and add an RV park with cabins to an existing business have moved forward, according to The Tribune.
Gregg Pardieck and Todd Storey with Parkland Inc. plan to build the RV park and cabins on the Chateau de Pique Winery and Brewery property at 6361 N. County Road 760E. in Seymour, Ind.
Pardieck asked for a land-use variance since his property is currently zoned R-1 (single-family residential), R-S (single-family residential zoning district) and C-1 (neighborhood commercial), but the latter doesn’t allow for RV parks.
Speaking on behalf of Parkland Inc., attorney Jeff Lorenzo said Pardieck and his father, Ralph, talked about including an RV park years ago, and it never came to fruition until now.
“It’s coming to fruition primarily because of a need driven by the coronavirus,” Lorenzo said. “We have lots of people who are not vacationing at typical resorts. They are buying RVs, and they are seeking out facilities like this. The whole process accelerated here in the last year or so.”
Pardieck is now requesting approval to have 45 sites for RVs to park and 20 cabins. Lorenzo said the full-service facility would have a bathhouse, electricity, two ponds, a playground, restrooms and shower facilities, a walking path and a gatehouse. The onsite management office would be in an existing building.
