The World Equestrian Games are less than a year away. Businesses all across central Kentucky are excited about the opportunities the games will bring. But residents near a Scott County farm are concerned that a plan to build a temporary RV park there could be too much for their country road to handle.
On this narrow Moore's Mill road it's not uncommon to have to pull over to let a larger vehicle pass. That's why plans by the management of Marguax Farm have neighbors worried. The permit, granted by the county, asks for permission to turn part of the farm into a RV park during the duration of the games. The park would house volunteers and families who had rented the trailers. The amount of RV's is the biggest concern. The plan calls for 570 units to be on the property.
At least two Scott County Magistrates said they knew nothing of the proposal until last Friday. They want to take another look at the permit before the project is finalized.
Jamie Link, the CEO of the WEG Foundation, says that while they could use the housing they wouldn't accept any accommodations that didn't pass county zoning regulations.
From here this project will go back in front of the Fiscal Court where they will discuss how the zoning ordinances they currently have apply to this case. That meeting is scheduled for next Wednesday, the 23rd at 9am.
