Preserve Chattooga County's Natural Beauty and Resources
Petition to Commissioner Blake Elsberry April, 2021
We the undersigned are interested in the quality of Life in Chattooga County, Georgia, the preservation of its natural beauty and resources and the efficient use of its limited financial and economic assets. We are asking the Commissioner not to approve any future request to designate any portion of Chattooga County private lands as a Recreational Vehicle Park, limiting those in the future to State and National Park lands that are adequately funded and staffed for the long term. This includes requests to place Tiny Homes known as THOW’s (Tiny Home on Wheels) and Park Model RV’s (PMRV), as well as campers and motorized RV’s in such private areas. All of these designated units are manufactured for limited use as Seasonal, Occasional, or Emergency use only and do not meet the State of Georgia building code requirement. We believe any designation of these type areas will eventually become an eyesore to the community and a drain on the police, fire and medical assets and other expense to the community, harm the natural environment and eventually subject those living in such units to unwarranted risks associated with the lack of adequate building codes. Respectfully Submitted.
