Changes Made to Proposed Campground Site Northeast of Lincoln

(KFOR NEWS  January 22, 2020)  For nearly 7 hours Tuesday, the Lincoln-Lancaster County Planning Commission talked the application for a 200-plus campsite on 45-acres northeast of Lincoln near Davey Road and Highway 77.

On KFOR’s Lincoln Live, County Board chair, Sean Flowerday, said owners of the proposed campgrounds have reduced the number of campsites from 240 to 150…about the same size as the entire community of Davey.  Flowerday said his fellow commissioners also reduced the number of days a camper could stay from 180 to 120 and the number of long-term stays from 180 to 90 days.

The proposed campground would include water and electrical hookups for traditional RV sites, tent sites and specialty camping sites.  The campground also would include swimming pools, a playground, bath and shower facilities and a dog run, among other amenities.

Flowerday tells KFOR NEWS attorneys are rewriting language in the proposal so the public is aware of changes.  A vote could come on Tuesday, January 28th.
