Energy Workers Want to Keep RV Park Open

Grand Junction Sentinel - Grand Junction,CO,USA

About 50 people, including workers and their spouses and children, filled a Rio Blanco County commissioners meeting Monday to ask the county to let a temporary 96-unit RV park west of Meeker continue operating after its permit expires July 31.

County Commission Chairman Forrest Nelson said it’s possible the county could approve a “very temporary” extension. But he said people have bought homes in a new subdivision by the park, with the understanding the park would be closing.

“They’re putting heat on us, too, so it’s not a one-sided deal,” Nelson said.
