The Seminole County Planning and Zoning Board will hold a work session on Thursday, October 6, at 6:00 p.m. for the purpose of continued discussion regarding the use of recreational vehicles in Seminole County. A recreational vehicle is defined as any mobile vehicle designed and equipped for the purposes of occupancy as a temporary or consistent living abode that incorporates bedding, bath, or kitchen accommodations.
The public is invited and encouraged to attend and to provide input at the October 6 work session which will be held at the Seminole County Courthouse located at 200 South Knox Avenue in Donalsonville.
A crowd of more than one hundred interested residents and Seminole County property owners showed up to discuss their views on the use of recreational vehicles at the August 30 Planning and Zoning Board Public Hearing.
One of the consensus opinions voiced by residents and property owners in attendance at that meeting was that recreational vehicle use as a temporary or consistent living abode should be allowed as long as all current county sewage and dwelling requirements and codes are met.
The Planning and Zoning Board held a work session immediately after that August 30 meeting to discuss the public comments received and to begin the development of a rough draft proposal to address all of the issues and to present to the Commissioners.
At the September 13 Seminole County Commission meeting it was announced that the October 6 work session was needed for continued discussion and to gain additional public information before finalizing a new policy proposal.
