Paul Evert’s RV Country recently was given the go-ahead by Laughlin, Nev., officials to build a service facility, according to the Laughlin Nevada Times.
Evert’s RV, based in Fresno, Calif., plans to build an eight-bay service center which it intends to open by Oct. 1 in the south Nevada community.
The company has a sales location in Laughlin but it needed a zoning change from local authorities before it could build the service center, the newspaper reported.
“I am pleased with the decision the commissioners made on the application,” Debbie Dauenhauer, chairman of the Laughlin Town Board, said.
Charles Stickerod, general manager of Paul Evert’s RV Country in Laughlin, requested many waivers to the local zoning code, including changing landscaping to be more compatible with Laughlin’s extreme desert temperatures, a second trash enclosure, and for the siding and roof pitch of the service facility to correspond with the neighboring Horizon Outlet Center.
At a town meeting earlier this month, Dauenhauer expressed concern about exiting RVs turning left onto Casino Drive. Stickerod assured her a large no-left-turn sign will be placed at the exit.
Gary Afrons, director of operations for G.C. Builders, who developed an RV park in Laughlin, said Evert’s service center facility will create jobs for Laughlin.
“Paul Evert’s RV has been a terrific community partner, not only providing jobs in the Colorado River area, but also as a benefactor to several social services organizations in the community,” Dauenhauer said.
