Study Favors RV Park over Upscale Resort

The Columbian - Vancouver,WA,USA
Broughton Lumber Co. could make a profit from the first year if it developed a recreational vehicle campground instead of the upscale 245-unit destination resort it has proposed, an economic study commissioned by Friends of the Columbia Gorge concludes.

The study by the Eugene, Ore.-based economic consultant ECONorthwest found that the 60-acre Broughton mill site near Underwood could be profitably redeveloped underĀ­ existing Columbia River Gorge National Scenic Area rules. Such a resort would fill a need for more camping sites in the gorge, said economist Ted L. Helvoigt, who did the study.

"The destination resort proposal that was proposed by Broughton has no place within the national scenic area, particularly adjacent to a state park along the Columbia River," said Friends conservation director Michael Lang.
