The Lostine (Ore.) City Council rejected a request for a zoning permit that would have allowed for the development of a 35- to 40-space RV park just south of the community’s suburban growth boundary, according to the Chieftain of Enterprise, Ore.
The Wallowa County Planning Commission, however, could overrule the Lostine council. The county Planning Commission is scheduled to vote on the matter on Sept. 30 during a meeting at the Courthouse in Enterprise, the seat of the northeastern Oregon county.
The RV park development was proposed by Inez Locken, who owns the 13-acre site on which it would be located. Locken said she would provide a dump station and possibly restrooms for campground guests. She also offered to plant fast-growing trees and erect a fence so her neighbors could maintain their privacy.
The Lostine council voted down Locken’s proposal because of complaints from her neighbors, who worry that the RV park could bring as many as 120 people into close proximity of their homes.
