KENNEWICK, Wash. - The idea of an RV park in Kennewick's Columbia Park has spurred heated discussions for months. Now Kennewick City Council Members report they've reached a decision.
Kennewick City Council and City Staff members said they've received a lot more public outcry about the RV park than they expected. And so six to one, city council members voted no on the proposal.
67 RV spaces would've replaced the driving range on the Columbia Park Golf Course, becoming the next door neighbor to the Veteran's Memorial. Most people didn't like the location and city council committee members agreed.
"It didn't look to the council committee, given all the outpouring of public input about that end of the park that it made sense," said Kennewick City Manager Bob Hammond.
Now just because you won't see an RV park near the Columbia Park entrance doesn't mean the idea is dead. City staff are still considering placing an RV park on West end of Columbia Park.
