Hearing will address code changes for RV park

An applicant-driven slate of changes to the City of Sisters Development Code will come before the Planning Commission in a public hearing on Thursday, April 18, at 5:30 p.m. at City Hall.

The changes, which would allow an RV park as a use in the Sun Ranch Tourist Commercial zone, would have to be in place before a formal plan for the site can be filed. The property developers propose a “boutique, higher-end RV Park that caters to the growing sector of the tourism industry that travels in RVs” to be sited on the property formerly known as the Conklin Guest House, near the intersection of Camp Polk Road/Locust Street and Barclay Drive.

The April 18 hearing will focus only on the proposed code changes. If the planning commission approves the code changes, the next steps for the developer would be to craft a detailed development plan for the property. It is at that point in the process that issues such as traffic and the specific proposed uses of the property would be up for discussion and debate.

The planning commission could accept the changes as proposed or recommend refinement of or changes to the amendments. Commissioners will deliberate on the proposal following the close of the public hearing.
