Orange County Commissioners Greenlight Shadee RV Park Amid Rising Demand

in Government/Local Roundup

In a unanimous decision, the Orange County Commissioners Court gave its nod of approval on Tuesday, January 23, 2024, for the development of Shadee RV Park, situated along Texas Highway 62, just south of Interstate 10. This marks a significant milestone as Shadee RV becomes the first park to be sanctioned under the county’s newly established regulations.

The surge in construction activities in the region, driven by the establishment and expansion of industrial plants, has spurred the rapid growth of RV parks throughout the county. In response to this trend, the Commissioners Court implemented additional rules last year to ensure that RV parks in unincorporated areas adhere to local standards.

Joel Ardoin, the Director of County Environmental Health and Code Compliance, addressed the court, affirming that the new RV park had successfully met the stringent regulations set forth by his department, the county’s Road and Bridge Department, and the Orange County Drainage District. With the court’s seal of approval, the developers are now poised to secure a county permit for their project.

It’s worth noting that Shadee RV Park will exclusively cater to RVs, as mobile homes will not be permitted within its premises. The decision reflects the county’s commitment to maintaining the integrity of its zoning regulations and ensuring that all developments align with the community’s evolving needs.
