The RV park in Navasota will be coming to a close soon. At Monday night’s city council meeting in Navasota, the park, what do do with it, which included relocation, was up for discussion.
Discussion ranged from relocation, to upgrades, to just full on closing it. Mayor Bert Miller shared his opinion on the park and said it might be better suited in a different location.
“I don’t think it should be where it is, I agree with that. Especially in regards to the new housing development. And with it being on airport property, it is not even funding the right place,” said Miller.
Mayor Pro-tem Grant Holt said that the park, compared to others he has seen, the area needs some work.
“It is hard to even really call it a park. I mean, I have done some extensive travelling in the last couple of months and stayed at a lot of different places. Either we need to do a whole lot to that area. Or I would prefer, like everyone else, if we just moved it from there,” Holt said.
Council member John Fultz toward the end stated that, after years of trying to get a partner to help clean the area up, it just might not be worth it to keep it open anymore.
“I think we have tried for two years to try and find something. I mean, do we keep going on with it and the repairs it needs at this point,” Fultz said.
Holt and Councilman Bernie Gessner and were both in the side that the city should wait and try to get it cleaned up a bit.
Ultimately, council voted to close the park by a 3-2 margin, with Holt and Gessner being the two against. There is no set date for the closure.
