The Goshen, Ind., Board of Works will facilitate a feasibility study for a potential recreation vehicle park on the west edge of town. As reported by the Goshen News, members approved the hiring of Commonwealth Engineers to conduct the study of costs and how such a park would benefit the city’s tourism industry.

“On paper it’s a good idea,” said Nappanee Mayor Larry Thompson, “but there are no dollar signs on the paper. We have to get there.”

 Thompson said city officials were approached by a local business to consider putting in an RV park. Thompson said he suspects having an RV park would benefit those coming in for maintenance of their RV at local dealers and manufacturers, as well as benefit local tourism. Elkhart County produces the majority of RVs in the world.

If the project comes to fruition, Thompson said it would likely be a joint public and private venture and anticipates it would have about 80 hook-up sites for RVs.
