RV park ‘not a thoughtful decision’

When people ask my husband and I why we chose to move to Durango, our response is, “It’s a beautiful, laidback mountain town with a great cycling and outdoors community.” The official Durango Visitors site says, “Enjoy 300 annual days of sunshine in the locale known for premiere mountain climbing, biking, skiing, fishing and more.”

If Roberts Resorts RV Park is allowed to build 200-plus tiny homes on Trimble Lane, that is a step in the wrong direction. Perhaps it is lucrative for the county and city, but it is not a thoughtful decision to maintain Durango’s true image. Durango already has over one dozen RV or mobile home parks, and this past Memorial Day, many of them had vacancies. County Road 250 and the valley are Durango’s cycling, running and walking corridor. We don’t want or need more traffic there.

As the Visit Durango website says, take the pledge to “care for Durango.” Please, care for Durango and don’t turn it into a “premiere RV park town.”
