Local RV business gets zoning approval

A recreational vehicle business can open its doors for spring sales after receiving City of Red Deer zoning approval.

A recreational vehicle business can open its doors for spring sales after receiving City of Red Deer zoning approval.

City council has approved zoning changes so that Western RV Country can sell new and used recreational vehicles, boats and motorcycle on its property along Burnt Park Drive, on the west side of Hwy 2.

Western RV bought the land while it was still in Red Deer County and subject to zoning that would have allowed sale of vehicles. But before the land could be developed it was annexed into the city and became subject to zoning that prohibits such activity.

The company sought to amend the zoning from I1 Industrial (business service) to direct control. In the interim, it obtained development approval from the city so that it could commence construction of a 25,000-square-foot building.

With the approval, Western RV should soon be able to commence operations at the $4.4-million facility. It is already serving customers from a temporary location further west.
