A proposed RV park in Brewton, Ala., is one step closer to reality, the Brewton Standard reported.

The park, called Twin Acres RV Park, will feature 48 units, a laundry facility, a bathhouse, a pavilion with grills, and an ice machine. The property would include landscaping and a 24-hour attendant, as well.

The Brewton City Council Monday held the first reading of an ordinance that would rezone a 3.62-acre parcel. It was the second time the council met on the matter after the city planning commission approved the space for workers with the Georgia Pacific renovation project.

An estimated 1,800 people will spend 18 months in Brewton working on a more than $400 million renovation project at the local GP mill.

At first presentation, property owner Jerry Kelly of Brewton asked to rezone the section to B5, which would allow for the installation of mobile homes; however, after the public claimed the designation would cause their property values to decline, the commission agreed to allow for a B3 designation which only allows for recreational vehicles.
