Published By Josh Gish Upson County Board of Commissioners addressed a series of concerns raised by the public in regards to an updated version of a proposed RV ordinance set to take effect in Upson County in the near future.
The public hearing was held Aug. Under public hearing format, various representatives from recreational vehicle facilities across Upson County were given five minute time slots to voice their personal grievances and recommendations for the ordinance proposal moving forward.
The report offered an explanation that the current policy since on RVs in Upson County is very simple. Unoccupied travel trailers, motor homes, and coaches are permitted as accessory structures only.
One may not legally take up residence inside of an RV parked on a private parcel of land. However, the policy in place for campgrounds reads differently as there are 20 special exceptions listed for the AR zoning district, one of which creates a special exception for recreational facilities.
Several Upson County business entities are looking to take advantage of this exception in order to avoid certain enforcement measures that will be enacted by the proposed ordinance.
A prime example is that of the campground facilities located at Hope of the Generations Church.
Visitors have reportedly taken advantage of the campgrounds at this facility for more than 70 years, outdating the first planning and zoning projects in Upson by decades.
The primary issue described by county officials was the problem of individuals residing in RVs parked not in RV parks, but on parcels of land with manufactured homes.
The updated ordinance more strongly states RVs are not suitable for permanent residential living, but should be used for short-term vacations, like interim travel, temporary emergency shelter, and special circumstances.
The planning commission also addressed instances such as short-term guest housing, and accommodation of documented workers such as contractors or traveling nurses at the hospital. Currently, it is illegal for an individual to accommodate an out-of-state RV on Upson County property for any amount of time.
Under the terms of the updated ordinance, temporary parking in the front yard while a relative or friend visits would be deemed legal as long as the visitor is the documented owner of the RV.
With regard to documented workers living in RVs, the planning commission enacted a month provision to allow workers to reside in RVs during their time in Upson County. A 12 month extension would also be made available if one obtained a permit granting the additional 12 months of residency.
Citizens concerned that the updated ordinance will impose a barrier on their current living situation claimed the most efficient way of life is through residing in their RV.
These individuals are enjoying a cost of living far less than those associated with generic households, and feel as though the ordinance oversteps its bounds in its authority to control their private property rights.
Six individuals spoke during public comments that evening. He was looking to purchase his property because it had a well and a septic tank on it, and it had a singlewide that was in pretty bad shape.
He said he bought it to have a place to come back and hook up to and travel. He indicated that his intention is to live in an RV if anything ever happened to his wife.
He said he lived in a RV while in Monroe County running a towing company. He indicated that living in an RV is the cheapest way to live.
He said he could hook up the septic, water and electricity beside the mobile home. Roger Mann with Shenandoah Valley on Jeff Davis Road said he received a letter in stating the park was grandfathered in.
He said inwhen Yamaha came to town, he was asked by a county official if they had a place to house workers. Mann said he built a campground in the bottom of the camp in a side area in the back of the mobile home park to house the workers. As of now, the RV section of the park has a full-time maintenance person, full-time security, and an employee to maintain the grounds.
Mann said he would like to see the 30 day maximum extended to 12 months for occupancy and added surrounding counties have full time occupancy in their ordinance.
Scott Harper, pastor for Hope of the Generations Church, said the church has owned and operated the campground there at Pleasant Valley Road for more than 24 years and operated it as a campground for many years prior to the new ownership in Each year we have approximately 1, to 1, guests that come through Thomaston and Upson County to stay with us for one to two weeks before they return back home.
Some of them have even returned to purchase homes, property, and made this their place of residency. Harper said the biggest concern from the church is what will be included in the ordinance.In Part 1 of this series, I talked about why the basic premise of the acid-alkaline theory is flawed, and I showed that the evidence doesn’t support the idea that a net acid-forming diet is harmful to bone health.
Now I want to look at the effect of dietary acid load on other health conditions. Can the acidity or alkalinity of your diet affect your risk for muscle loss, cancer, and more?
