Prpoerty owner defends planned RV resort

NATCHEZ — Larry L. “Butch” Brown doesn’t know what all the fuss is about.

The owner of the near 13 acres of land on Canal Street is looking to convert that land to an RV resort and said he was shocked to hear of the staunch opposition the project met during Thursday night’s planning meeting.

“I don’t really know what the concern is,” he said. “We have no intentions of doing anything but a very upscale, very small, limited use recreational resort in conjunction with a three or four-story hotel and a standalone restaurant.”

A public hearing for the approval of an amendment revision to allow the B-2 zoned property to house an RV resort brought many property owners out to voice their concerns.

Concerns included devaluation of neighboring residences and fear that the property would begin as high-end but denigrate to a trailer park.

“People were calling it a trailer park and one of the neighbors down there had some very derogatory things to say about a trailer park,” Brown said. “To call it a trailer park is really a disservice to all upscale RV parks in America.”
