Nacogdoches, Tex., city officials took a step closer on Wednesday (July 9) to approving a 50-acre RV rally park, according to KTRE-TV of Lufkin, Tex.
All that Nacogdoches officials have yet to do is vote to approve the purchase of the site and approve final plans for the development, which is estimated to cost between $2 million and $2.5 million, according to the TV station.
Urged on by executives from Nacogdoches-based highline diesel pusher manufacturer Foretravel Motorhomes Inc., city officials became convinced that a large RV rally park would be a revenue-generator for their community.
Because there are so few facilities around the country capable of accommodating large RV rallies, Foretravel executives convinced Nacogdoches officials that a facility there would find a niche.
The proposed Nacogdoches rally park would be big enough to accommodate around 200 rigs and it would include a permanent visitors center.
The Nacogdoches Convention and Visitors Bureau hopes to find a local contractor to draw up plans for the proposed development, according to the TV station.
