The Woodford County (Kentucky) planning commission unanimously approved a proposal April 29 to turn a largely vacant industrial park in Midway, Ky., into a temporary campground for up to 500 recreational vehicles during the 2010 Alltech FEI World Equestrian Games in September, according to getreadyky.com.
The commission’s recommendation now goes to Midway City Council for a final vote. The council had asked for Thursday’s hearing and is likely to approve the proposal.
Nashville RV dealer Raymond Brody said he plans to bring 400 travel trailers to Midway Station, an industrial park north of downtown and on the northeast corner of the Interstate 64 interchange.
He proposes to provide waste disposal, 24-hour security and transportation for visitors to downtown Midway and to the games. The games will be Sept. 25 through Oct. 10 at the Kentucky Horse Park.
The trailers will be towed to the property and be rented to visitors at daily rates of $150 to more than $2,000, depending on the services provided, Brody said. Each travel trailer has a kitchen, dinette, shower, toilet and several beds.
