County says no to RV park in Lanark

Hi Y’all,

As you have already heard, the big news in Lanark last week was that the residents of Lanark were able to stand together to have a zoning change denied for the 2390 Oak Street property. The owners had requested to have a recreational vehicle park operate in Lanark Village. Nearly 300 residents and property owners signed a petition to stop this zoning change. Also, it was discovered that this property had not gone through the proper compliance for a C-4 which was supposed to be the zoning already. The owners wanted it to be changed to C-3.

A big “Thank You” to the Franklin County Commissioners for listening and hearing the important reasons that were given to them to consider, and for their unanimous no on the zoning change. And for taking in consideration the many names on the petition and the many letters, emails, phone calls and more that showed valid reasons why Lanark residents did not think that this would in any way enhance Lanark, but only hurt it. 

Another fun weekend in Lanark with the Friday evening burgers at the American Legion, the Saturday morning Lanark Village Boat Club amazing pancake breakfast and the Legion’s Karaoke. Just up the road was the FSU Marine Lab Open House. They really put on a great event.

The Mom’s Day baskets are still available to get in on the raffle. They are filled with wonderful things, and you can see them at Chillas Hall’s Coffee Time, Monday through Friday, from 9 to 11 a.m.

Coming up on Saturday, April 27 will be the popular Carrabelle Riverfront Festival, from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Many of our Lanark residents will be participating in this event. The Lanark Village Wandering Star Quilters will be having an Airing of the Quilts at George Sands Park from 9:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. For more information call 406-660-0760. 

Lanark Village RV/Boat Storage has some lots available for rent, at the lowest cost for comparable spaces. Email either Lanarkva@yahoo.com or p.funderburk@yahoo.com.

Just a little information on St. James/Lanark Fire Department volunteers. There is weekly training now for the volunteers. The Lanark District is so proud of our volunteers. Thank you.

Remember to keep your garbage away from the bears. It is a crime to feed bears, and not securing your cans properly is feeding the bears and hurting your neighborhood and neighbors.

Love Lanark.
