The Bristol (Va.) Planning Commission voted down the recommendation of rezoning land for a proposed campground and RV park, according to WJHL.

City Manager Randy Eads said the commission voted down the proposal on Monday (Sept. 16), and that council will vote on the issue Sept. 24.

Residents along Long Crescent Road spoke out against the proposed zoning request changes during last week’s city council meeting.

Developers are wanting to bring a recreational development that would accommodate tent camping, RVs, and overnight cabins.

The rezoning would have changed roughly 19 acres of undeveloped residential land into a business zone to build a campground.
