Etowah neighbors say RV park proposal could turn golf greens into a hazard
ETOWAH, N.C. —
Neighbors are mobilizing against a mobile home development proposal. Though the Etowah Valley Golf Course may be acres of greens and woods now, neighbors worry if the proposal goes through, the course could be replaced with concrete and gravel.
Paula Hahn recently moved into the neighborhood, with a house beside the golf course. She had no idea her backyard could soon become an RV park, with space for 343 RVs, a golf course, and a two-story wastewater treatment center behind existing homes and a restaurant, among other things.
Neighbors say the proposal would turn their greens into a hazard.
RV park would be a nightmare, Etowah Valley residents say of plans for nearby golf course
HENDERSON COUNTY, N.C. (WLOS) — Developers in Henderson County are working to purchase Etowah Valley Golf & Resort and turn a portion of it into an RV park. Since finding out about the plan, many nearby residents have been working to stop it.
Julie Brandt said they just found out about Tribute Investment and Development Inc.'s proposal two weeks ago. “I have walked that golf course for 32 years, and it breaks my heart to see what’s going to happen to it,” she said.
