The developers of a proposed recreational vehicle park on the shores of Lake Anna in Spotsylvania County have invited community feedback on their project.
The park was originally proposed in both Orange and Spotsylvania counties; the Orange County Planning Commission rejected the original plan last summer. Since then, the two county governments have resolved a boundary dispute; as a result, the developers now plan for the entire project to be in Spotsylvania County.
The only exception is the main entrance to the RV park, which will be in Orange County on Zachary Taylor Highway (Route 522) just north of Pamunkey Creek.
Lonnie Carter, a developer active in a number of Lake Anna projects, leads the development team along with the Wills Companies, based in Northern Virginia.
Current plans are for the park to have room for 300 recreational vehicles at a time, and the same number of boat slips.
The Spotsylvania County planning commission and board of supervisors may schedule public hearings on the proposal later this year. To proceed, the developers need a special-use permit, as the RV project is not allowed by right in the resort-agricultural zoning district.
Information about the plan can be found at fourseasonsatlakeanna.com until Feb. 26. Feedback can be emailed to CommunityMtngFeedback@gayandneel.com or by U.S. mail to Gay and Neel, Inc., 1260 Radford St., Christiansburg, VA 24073.
Feedback submitted and received by March 1 will be processed and receive a response. The developers added that all of these comments will be shared with the Spotsylvania County Planning Department.
The advocacy group Lake Anna Civic Association has prepared comments about the project. The group, concerned about how the RV park may contribute to the lake's harmful algae bloom problem, has made suggestions to the developers to offset the impact.
