Hyatt Lake Resort Concession Closes in Oregon
ASHLAND, Ore. - The concession contract between the Bureau of Reclamation and Campers Cove Resort Inc., for the operation of Hyatt Lake Resort will expire September 1 and will not be renewed. The resort is located at Hyatt Lake about 14 miles east of Ashland, Ore.

The removal of the resort has been reviewed over the past year by Reclamation and it was determined that its removal will result in a cost savings to taxpayers by eliminating administrative and oversight costs, resolve federal trespass issues, and will not have a negative impact on recreation since similar recreation facilities are available nearby.

The former concession area encompassed about 3 acres of Reclamation land which will remain open for day use activities such as parking, snowmobiling and shoreline fishing. People will also have access to three nearby boat ramps operated by Bureau of Land Management.

The lake is impounded by Hyatt Dam which was constructed in 1923 by the Talent Irrigation District for water storage.

Reclamation is the largest wholesale water supplier and the second largest producer of hydroelectric power in the United States, with operations and facilities in the 17 Western States. Its facilities also provide substantial flood control, recreation, and fish and wildlife benefits. Visit our website at www.usbr.gov.

Case

A seasonal campground at Hyatt Lake in Oregon has been illegally converted into a year-round, high-density recreational vehicle park, a Greensprings neighborhood group charged during a Jackson County public hearing Monday (June 29). 

“It has morphed into what I would call an immobile home park,” said Medford resident Brad Inman, who formerly lived at Hyatt Lake. 

The neighbors have appealed Jackson County planning approval of a limited expansion at Hyatt Lake Resort, which is operated by the same group as nearby Campers Cove. Owners of the resort, known as Campers Cove Resort LLC, also have appealed the planning decision, saying they are entitled to the changes they’ve requested, according to the Medford Mail Tribune

The owners want to install park models on 35 spaces, but county planners determined they actually are entitled to only 22 spaces that can have water, electricity and sewage hook-ups. 

Hearings officer Dan Rubenstein is wading through 900 pages of planning documents as well as other evidence presented at the public hearing, which will be followed by a six-week rebuttal period. He is expected to make a decision by Sept. 25. 

Bob McNeely, one of the resort owners, said he’s already sold units on the 22 recreational vehicle sites and was in the process of selling four on the 13 contested sites when he got shut down by the county.

McNeely has been given tentative approval for some of the changes he’s requested. County planners supported expanding the deck off the restaurant, reconstructing the bait shop, reconstructing four cabins without kitchens, upgrading a shop building and upgrading a shower building. 

McNeely wanted a total of 65 RV spaces at the resort, but dropped that number to 57 Monday. The resort is on his land and on land he leases from the U.S. Bureau of Land Management. Many of the RV spaces have only limited services. 

The property is zoned “forest reserve” and the development on the property is considered non-conforming, requiring a higher level of scrutiny by planning staff. The owners also have to prove that any changes to the property don’t have a significant impact on the surrounding neighborhood. 

“Historically the use of the campground was as a campground,” said Pamela Hardy, a Bend lawyer who represents the newly formed group Southern Oregon Citizens for Responsible Land Use Planning. “It was not a residential development as you have here.” 

Jay Harland of CSA Planning Ltd. of Medford, which represents Campers Cove LLC, said he had a hard time swallowing Hardy’s argument. 

“It was an RV park before and it is an RV park after,” he said. 

Much of the discussion revolved around the type of recreational vehicle Campers Cover was installing. Many residents said these small cabins are attracting people to the resort year-round rather than just seasonally. The cabins are sold, but the resort then rents them out for the owners. 

Glenn Munsell, who lives on Hyatt Prairie Road, said the owners have already run afoul of county laws, pointing out that one manufactured dwelling has been placed on the property without permits. “It’s presently being used as an office or administrative business,” he said. 

Planning staff confirmed that the building had been in violation of county codes. However, a storage permit was issued that allowed the owners to continue to keep the building on the property, but not use it for offices. But planning staff indicated the permit may have expired. 

McNeely, who also is one of the owners of the company that builds the recreational vehicles on the property, responded to neighbors’ complaints about sewage, water, fire hazards and other problems. His representatives also provided seven letters from surrounding property owners in favor of the improvements to the resort. 

McNeely said his sewage-treatment operation and leach fields are more than adequate to handle the 35 RVs planned. According to regulations, he said he needs to have a facility that can handle 100 gallons a day from each RV. However, he anticipated each RV would generate only about 46.7 gallons, based on usage at his Brookings RV park. 

He said Hyatt Lake Resort has adequate water, and he has reduced the fire danger by removing underbrush, cutting off tree limbs and having two fire trucks on site. 

McNeely, who said he has no permanent residents at the resort, said his recreational vehicles have the same state stamp as any other RV. He said it doesn’t make sense that neighbors would want $500,000 RVs driving up the mountain and pulling into his spaces, rather than having the units he’s already installed. 

“They’re saying, we want you to put a Chevy in there, but we don’t want a Cadillac,” he said

Park model cabins in Oregon's Hyatt Lake Resort

Park model cabins in Oregon's Hyatt Lake Resort

Millions of dollars invested in the Hyatt Lake Resort in southern Oregon are on the line as park model cabin owners fear the fallout from a recent ruling by a Jackson County hearings officer.

At the same time, the owner of the resort, Bob McNeely, filed for bankruptcy on Sept. 30 for Nor’wester Industries Inc. of Washington, the company that built the cabins, which McNeely describes as recreational vehicles, according to the Mail Tribune, Medford, Ore.

On Oct. 13, McNeely filed an appeal with the Oregon Land Use Board of Appeals (LUBA) over the Jackson County hearings officer’s decision that finds the county planning department erred when it allowed 22 units on the property in the first place.

Owners of the cabins, who have agreements to rent them out for $150 or more a night, now are worried about their $150,000 to $200,000 investment, and the fear has spread to nearby Campers Cove, where another 25 units have been installed. Most of the owners live in Jackson County.

“I think everybody is pretty stressed out and concerned,” said Robin Schooler, who owns one of the small cabins at the Hyatt Lake Resort.

The Bonanza resident said her dismay about the situation is directed more at surrounding Greensprings property owners who appealed Jackson County’s approval of a limited expansion of the resort.

Hearings officer Donald Rubenstein concluded that small cabins referred to by the resort owner as recreational vehicles are, in fact, dwellings that potentially pose a fire danger for the resort and the surrounding forest.

He said the resort 20 miles east of Ashland resembles a high-density residential development with some units only 7 feet apart.

Rubenstein concluded county planners erred in allowing 22 of the cabins at the resort. He rejected a request to add an additional 13 spaces.

Schooler said her husband, Michael, helped Bob McNeely’s brother, Don, log some of the trees on the property.

“The whole situation for us is kind of sad,” she said. “My husband and Don McNeely are best friends. We’re not letting any of this come between us.”

Still, Schooler is worried about receiving a percentage of the rent from her cottages that goes back to August, particularly with property taxes now owed. “That’s pretty upsetting,” she said.

Despite the lack of rent collected from tenants who have stayed in her cabin, Schooler said she and her husband continue to make the payments for the park model and lease of the property from Campers Cove.

Schooler said McNeely told cabin owners that filing an appeal with LUBA would buy an extra 12 to 14 months before any action could be taken to remove the park models.

“We don’t want to lose our cabin,” she said. “We don’t want to lose the resort.”

McNeely said he’s ready to fight any attempts to shut him down.

“I will go to my grave resolving it,” he said.

He said millions of dollars now are tied up in the project, his line of credit has been canceled and his company, Nor’wester, has been shut down and its 105 employees have been laid off. He said he’s also laid off more than 30 employees at the resort. So far, he said he has spent almost $150,000 in legal fees.

As a result of the publicity, McNeely said he has received 57 cancellations at his resort, but disputed claims he is behind in payments to cabin owners.

He blames both the Greensprings neighbors and the county, which gave him the permits, for the situation that threatens his livelihood.

With the economy in such a slump, he said he doesn’t understand why his efforts to clean up the resort and make things better in Jackson County have been battered by local government.

“Honest to God, I feel I’m in a communist country,” he said.

If the state does rule against him, he said it would lead to closing other facilities in Oregon that have similar types of recreational vehicles. He cited, in particular, Howard Prairie and Lake of the Woods.

In addition, McNeely said cabin owners likely will sue him, and he will sue the county if the hearings officer’s decision is upheld.

McNeely said the records on his property seem clear. He said he is entitled to 65 recreational vehicle spaces, but only wanted to use 35.

“I didn’t build any sites there,” he said. “They were already there.”

He said he received septic licenses from the Jackson County Health Department for 35 sites.

In the hearings officer’s decision, McNeely said he sees the potential to try to shut down nearby Campers Cove.

He said there is a lot of misinformation, particularly about the cabins, which he said are clearly designated and designed as recreational vehicles.

While McNeely struggles to keep his resort going and fend off the county, he said he has noticed local government agencies continue to improve parks and have even proposed an aquatic park in Medford.

“The county owns all of the recreation in the county,” he said. “It’s a real crying shame what our country has come to.”

Sandy Speasl, a member of the neighborhood group Southern Oregon Citizens for Responsible Land Use Planning, said she understands why the cabin owners blame her group. “They have to blame somebody,” she said.

But, she said, other landowners have been forced to adhere strictly to county regulations, so she said all her group is asking is the resort adhere to the same rules.

“The whole reason we did this is so the county would give everybody equitable treatment, and so that they would obey the laws that are set up,” she said.

Speasl said the hearings officer’s decision is appropriate, even if it means the cabins would have to be removed.

“I think the hearings officer was pretty clear on that,” she said. “They are not allowed.”

Talent resident Felicia Hazel said she and her husband are very concerned about the investment they’ve made at Hyatt Lake Resort.

“We got into it as a rental, and that rental would pay for itself, and it hasn’t even come close to that,” she said. “As far as what happens next, I’m not sure.”

Hazel said she hasn’t yet received the rental income from August, though she continues to make lease payments on the land.

She said most of the value of buying into the resort is in placing the cabins on the wooded property a short distance from the lake and just off Hyatt Prairie Road.

“The value is gone if we have to remove the park model and the hot tub,” she said.

Hazel said she looked at Whaleshead Beach Resort, also owned by McNeely, before making the purchase, and she and her husband were impressed.

Because of the uncertainty, Hazel said, “We need to take a look at what our options are to protect ourselves.”

Phoenix resident Fred Riffle owns a cabin at Campers Cove, and he’s worried the land-use problems from Hyatt Resort could become a problem for him.

“It’s just going to be a complete loss of investment if the county and whoever has their way,” he said.

Riffle, 68, said he was counting on the income from the rental of his cabin to help him with his retirement.

He expects to call McNeely to ask him about the back rent in the near future, but wants to give McNeely ample time to resolve the situation.

“We’re not going to bug him,” he said. “He needs all the time he can get to defend himself.”

Park model cabins at Hyatt Lake Resort in southern Oregon.

Park model cabins at Hyatt Lake Resort in southern Oregon.

Editor’s Note: Sandy Speasl, a year-round resident of Hyatt Lake, Ore., and a member of Southern Oregon Citizens for Responsible Land Use Planning, wrote this opinion piece that appeared in the Medford, Ore., Mail Tribune. It pertains to a government official’s decision that could force the closing of a park model resort in that southern Oregon community.

We wish to point out several inaccuracies in the Oct. 26 Mail Tribune article concerning Hyatt Lake Resort and to highlight some information about this decision and final order handed down by the independent hearings officer, Donald Rubenstein.

That decision was made after a three-month review of more than 1,000 pages of testimony and information compiled by all the parties in the appeal. Rubenstein’s 42-page decision is available to the public at Jackson County Development Services, as is the county planning staff report.

Last May, neighbors were advised of a zoning decision concerning Hyatt Lake. Because we disagreed with the county’s decision to permit development in a Forest Resource Zone, we filed an appeal. As citizens who live in the area, we were also alarmed when neighbors reported sewage flowing from Bob McNeely’s property into the lake.

McNeely contends he is operating an RV resort. We contend he has built a planned unit development (subdivision) on land that is zoned Forest Resource and has been historically permitted as a seasonal campground only. Rubenstein agrees with our assessment.

We are extremely concerned about potential fire and propane explosions. Each cabin that McNeely has built has an attached 120-gallon propane tank, with no setbacks as required for a house. The cabins are as close together as 7 feet, and surrounded by extensive wooden decks and wooden skirting.

A fire expert who testified at the hearing noted, “This density exceeds the setbacks that are required even under a municipal code where the inhabitants have fire hydrants and city fire departments that respond in under five minutes. This resort has no means of suppression for a full structure fire, let alone multiple structures that would surely follow.”

Rubenstein determined there was “no doubt that the risk of fire from the park model development significantly increases the risk of fire both within and beyond the resort.”

In the article, McNeely claims he is entitled to develop 65 RV spaces and has septic licenses from Jackson County for 35 sites. The county found some evidence to support full service to 21 sites, but found no evidence of approved land-use permits or sanitary sewer permits since 1977.

“There were four or five cabins without kitchens that were rented in some winters but there was no overnight winter recreational use of the resort beyond that,” Rubenstein’s decision said.

In fact, many of the alterations for which McNeely sought permits had already been put in place, apparently violating his federal lease with the U.S. Bureau of Reclamation as well as county regulations. He also set up an office and administrative building at the resort without permits. It was red-tagged and ordered decommissioned. McNeely is apparently ignoring the county’s order, as this office continues to be used daily.

In the article, McNeely states, “there is much misinformation, particularly about the cabins, which are clearly designated and designed as recreational vehicles.” We would agree with him as to the misinformation.

According to the Oregon Structural Code, a “park trailer” is an RV “built on a single chassis, mounted on wheels … with a gross trailer area not exceeding 400 square feet when in the set-up mode.” The hearings officer found that many of these “park models” set up at Hyatt Lake Resort are actually “two park models attached to one another to form structures that are wider than 30 feet and far in excess of the 400-square-foot limit that governs park model structures. Additionally, many of them have second stories and dormers and lofts, and all of the units have hot tubs. They are advertised as capable of sleeping between two and six people. Evidence establishes that units are used to sleep as many as eight.”

McNeely clearly does not see these units as RVs either, as he openly advertises them as “cabins” and “destination homes.” We encourage people to drive to Hyatt Lake to judge for themselves whether the units resemble RVs or permanent houses.

McNeely blames the county and his neighbors for his financial woes. We contend that Campers Cove LLC did not follow proper procedures.

Admittedly, the county made mistakes in allowing this development to occur in the first place. However, through public input and testimony — a right we may all exercise because we do not live in a communist country — the hearings officer determined what was necessary to correct these errors. It’s now the public’s job to support the county in seeing that the final decision and order are carried out if the state Land Use Board of Appeals determines it should be.

 TWO LONG YEARS AGO ! !

" The Oregon Land Use Board of Appeals last week confirmed Hyatt Lake Resort cannot pursue expansion efforts and left a legal question mark over 22 existing cabins.

LUBA determined Donald Rubenstein, Jackson County hearings officer, was correct when he concluded the resort couldn't install 13 additional small cabins referred to by the owner as recreational vehicles

Last October, Rubenstein also found Jackson County planners erred in approving the installation of 22 cabins at the resort, located 20 miles east of Ashland.

Rubenstein's conclusion sent shudders through cabin owners and Hyatt resort owner Bob McNeely, who worried the cabins might have to be removed.

LUBA said Rubenstein's determination doesn't mean the cabins have to be removed at this time.

LUBA did caution that the Hyatt Lake resort might have to undertake a lengthy land-use process in the future to prove the cabins comply with state law.

"We felt there were some land-use laws that were being violated," she said.

 "If the county made an error, the county should do what's right."

Rubenstein concluded that the small cabins referred to by the resort owner as recreational vehicles are, in fact, dwellings that potentially pose a fire danger for the resort and the surrounding forest.

He said the resort resembles a high-density residential development with some units only 7 feet apart.

Portland attorney Roger Alfred, who represents McNeely's company, Campers Cove LLC, said his client was reasonably pleased with the outcome.

"If I were one of the 22 owners, I would be a lot happier than a week ago," he said.

He anticipated that opponents would have a tough legal road to try and get the 22 cabins removed.

 

McNeely filed for bankruptcy on Sept. 30 for Nor'wester Industries Inc. of Washington, the company that built the cabins.

 

McNeely has previously said he has millions of dollars tied up in the resort, his line of credit has been canceled and Nor'wester has been shut down and its 105 employees have been laid off. (according to the employees, there was never this number)

As a result of the publicity, McNeely said he has received cancellations of reservations at his resort, but has disputed claims he is behind in payments to cabin owners.

 

Frank Hammond, who is the county counsel, said the LUBA ruling is consistent with the county's position on the resort. The county maintained that even though the hearings officer found an error in the approval of the 22 units, he was just using it as an example to support not approving the 13 units. The hearings officer did not revoke the permits on the 22 units.he   ( Time will tell, as the Courts Review & use common sense)

Medford attorney Sydnee Dreyer, who represents 26 clients who have an interest in the cabins, said, "We are pleased with the outcome because that doesn't affect the status of the original 22 units."

Statewide Planning Goals
Fort Rock in Lake County

Since 1973, Oregon has maintained a strong statewide program for land use planning. The foundation of that program is a set of 19 Statewide Planning Goals.
 
The goals express the state's policies on land use and related topics, such as citizen involvement, housing, and natural resources.
 

 
Oregon´s statewide goals are achieved through local comprehensive planning. State law requires each city and county to adopt a comprehensive plan and the zoning and land-division ordinances needed to put the plan into effect.
 
The local comprehensive plans must be consistent with the Statewide Planning Goals. Plans are reviewed for such consistency by the state´s Land Conservation and Development Commission (LCDC). When LCDC officially approves a local government´s plan, the plan is said to be acknowledged. It then becomes the controlling document for land use in the area covered by that plan.
 
Oregon´s planning laws apply not only to local governments but also to special districts and state agencies. The laws strongly emphasize coordination -- keeping plans and programs consistent with each other, with the goals, and with acknowledged local plans. "

DON and KATHY MCNEELY ( Partial Owners)

Don and Kathy McNeely are partners in Nor'Wester Industries, along with both of the destination resorts owned by the McNeely's (Whaleshead Beach Resort (situated near Brookings, Oregon) and Mountain Resort at Hyatt Lake (snuggled up in the mountains east of Ashland, Oregon). Donny is Bob McNeely's younger brother, and he has extensive logging expertise. Donny is also extremely skilled when it comes to heavy equipment operations. Donny's logging and heavy equipment expertise have proven vital to the development of both of the McNeely family's destination resorts. Because the many resort responsibilities are shared equally among the McNeelys, Donny and Kathy can usually be found at whichever of these resorts Bob and Jeanne are not.

Just one of Kathy's many resort responsibilities is that of being in charge of the landscaping at Whalesehead Beach Resort. Kathy has done a masterful job of placing just the right plant in just the right location, thus adding the necessary "finishing touches" to render this park absolutely gorgeous. Kathy is also a marvelous cook and baker and she frequently lends a hand in the resort restaurants. Perhaps even more importantly, Kathy oversees office staff to ensure that customers are treated both professionally and courteously. Kathy sincerely views customers of the McNeely family resorts as "guests" who deserve to feel as though they are right "at home."

 

 Although Donny and Kathy are not involved in the actual day-to-day operations of Nor'Wester Industries (due to their considerable obligations at the two McNeely family resorts) you may see Donny for a fleeting moment as he is dropping off or picking up materials up from Nor'Wester

 Former deputy faces charges in Curry County

 Joshua Bryant

Joshua Bryant 

Gold Beach  – A former Klamath County sheriff’s deputy was arraigned in Curry County Circuit Court on Tuesday on charges he committed several sex-related crimes in May

          at a vacation rental in the  Whaleshead Beach Resort,  north of Brookings.

                            BEWARE  CAMPGROUND KARMA...

 

 

 

The Curry County Grand Jury indicted Joshua Andrew Bryant, 39, on June 23. He was arrested by United States Marshals in the Hood River area on Monday and was released on 10 percent of $345,000 security to appear in Curry County. Authorities said they were investigating whether Bryant was involved in similar activity elsewhere.

  

 

“The defendant comes from a very wealthy family, who have an island in Chile,” Dial said.

Dial said that when Bryant was arrested, there were numerous atlases in the car.

“He certainly was thinking about leaving. When detectives interviewed the defendant, he was under suspension in the Sheriff’s Department and was planning to go to Hawaii,” Dial said.

“We believe charges are pending in Klamath County and Lane County,” he said.

Dial asked that Bryant’s security be increased and that he be ordered to surrender his passport

AND A FEW SHORT YEARS EARLIER, HE HAD THE SICKNESS TO WORK WITH KIDS:

 ... will fill the vacancy created by moving Joshua Bryant to school resource officer.

"I want to be able to make an impact with the kids," Bryant said of his interest in the SRO position. "If they make the right choices now we won't have to deal with them in the future."
Bryant, 32, joined the Baker City Police Department two years ago. He is a 1989 BHS graduate and served seven years in the U.S. Army where he worked as a military police officer and in field artillery.
After leaving the Army, Bryant worked in corrections for two years in Georgia. He returned to Baker City in 1998 and spent one year as a sheriff's deputy before joining the city police department.
Bryant's SRO position will be funded for the first three years by a $125,000 federal grant. The Baker School District will pay 75 percent of the officer's salary and benefits in the fourth year, an estimated $46,551. Over the four years, the city will pay about $55,100 to fund the position

Support effort for local food bank

 " Editor: 

While visiting your lovely town, my wife and I discovered that Whaleshead Beach Resort manager Kathy McNeely has joined with a local artist, who wishes to remain anonymous, in a fundraising project for the Brookings/Harbor Food Bank. 

Whaleshead Beach Resort is selling original oil paintings which feature views of Whaleshead Beach State Park and ALL sale proceeds will be donated to the Food Bank. 

These paintings make a wonderful gift or the perfect momento of a coastal getaway while supporting the Brookings/Harbor Food Bank     which serves our entire community

I’m thinking that you and the readers of the Pilot will want to know of this opportunity which seems like a win/win/win for everyone.

NOW FOR SOME  NON-ANONYMOUS     FACTS

AS PRINTED IN WOODALLS CAMPGROUND MANAGEMENT

MAY 1, 2009

“They’re saying, we want you to put a Chevy in there, but we don’t want a Cadillac,”  McNeely  said.

900 PAGES OF PAPERWORK CREATED

July 1, 2009 by Woodall's Campground Management ·  

" A seasonal campground at Hyatt Lake in Oregon has been illegally converted into a year-round, high-density recreational vehicle park, a Greensprings neighborhood group charged during a Jackson County public hearing Monday (June 29). 

“It has morphed into what I would call an immobile home park,” said Medford resident Brad Inman, who formerly lived at Hyatt Lake

The neighbors have appealed Jackson County planning approval of a limited expansion at Hyatt Lake Resort, which is operated by the same group as nearby Campers Cove. Owners of the resort, known as Campers Cove Resort LLC, also have appealed the planning decision, saying they are entitled to the changes they’ve requested, according to the Medford Mail Tribune

The owners want to install park models on 35 spaces, but county planners determined they actually are entitled to only 22 spaces that can have water, electricity and sewage hook-ups. 

Hearings officer Dan Rubenstein is wading through 900 pages of planning documents as well as other evidence presented at the public hearing, which will be followed by a six-week rebuttal period. He is expected to make a decision by Sept. 25. 

Bob McNeely, one of the resort owners, said he’s already sold units on the 22 recreational vehicle sites and was in the process of selling four on the 13 contested sites when he got shut down by the county.

McNeely has been given tentative approval for some of the changes he’s requested. County planners supported expanding the deck off the restaurant, reconstructing the bait shop, reconstructing four cabins without kitchens, upgrading a shop building and upgrading a shower building. 

McNeely wanted a total of 65 RV spaces at the resort, but dropped that number to 57 Monday. The resort is on his land and on land he leases from the U.S. Bureau of Land Management. Many of the RV spaces have only limited services. 

The property is zoned “forest reserve” and the development on the property is considered non-conforming, requiring a higher level of scrutiny by planning staff.

The owners also have to prove that any changes to the property don’t have a significant impact on the surrounding neighborhood. 

“Historically the use of the campground was as a campground,” said Pamela Hardy, a Bend lawyer who represents the newly formed group Southern Oregon Citizens for Responsible Land Use Planning. “It was not a residential development as you have here.” 

Jay Harland of CSA Planning Ltd. of Medford, which represents Campers Cove LLC, said he had a hard time swallowing Hardy’s argument. 

“It was an RV park before and it is an RV park after,” he said. 

Much of the discussion revolved around the type of recreational vehicle Campers Cover was installing. Many residents said these small cabins are attracting people to the resort year-round rather than just seasonally. The cabins are sold, but the resort then rents them out for the owners. 

Glenn Munsell, who lives on Hyatt Prairie Road, said the owners have already run afoul of county laws, pointing out that one manufactured dwelling has been placed on the property without permits. “It’s presently being used as an office or administrative business,” he said. 

Planning staff confirmed that the building had been in violation of county codes. However, a storage permit was issued that allowed the owners to continue to keep the building on the property, but not use it for offices. But planning staff indicated the permit may have expired. 

McNeely, who also is one of the owners of the company that builds the recreational vehicles on the property, responded to neighbors’ complaints about sewage, water, fire hazards and other problems. His representatives also provided seven letters from surrounding property owners in favor of the improvements to the resort

McNeely said his sewage-treatment operation and leach fields are more than adequate to handle the 35 RVs planned. According to regulations, he said he needs to have a facility that can handle 100 gallons a day from each RV. However, he anticipated each RV would generate only about 46.7 gallons, based on usage at his Brookings RV park.   B U L L.

He said Hyatt Lake Resort has adequate water, and he has reduced the fire danger by removing underbrush, cutting off tree limbs and having two fire trucks on site. 

McNeely, who said he has no permanent residents at the resort, said his recreational vehicles have the same state stamp as any other RV.

 He said it doesn’t make sense that neighbors would want $500,000 RVs driving up the mountain and pulling into his spaces, rather than having the units he’s already installed. 

“They’re saying, we want you to put a Chevy in there, but we don’t want a Cadillac,” he said.  ( OR ILLEGAL COPTERS EITHER !)

TRICKS THE EYE - ADVERTISED AS CABINS NOT RV

                                           ~~~ as recorded by the hikers ~~~

  " In 2006, Bob McNeely, the operator of a  resort on the Oregon coast, bought  Hyatt Lake Resort ( Hyatt Prairie Road, Ashland), with some ambitious plans modeled on his previous endeavors.

 

The new ' cabins '  in place (actually pre-fabbed trailers trucked into the site) are individually owned by investors, who lease space from the resort. The resort, in turn, rents these out on a nightly basis and services them, in a manner roughly analogous to a timeshare management company. They are cabins   by PCT standards, with  kitchens, entertainment media and furnishings, big decks and all the trappings of ski-resort condos. It's the I-Can't-Believe-It's-A-Trailer trailer park.

 His operation includes neighboring Camper's Cove, a quarter-mile roadwalk further up the lakeshore. As of spring 2010, McNeely was still embroiled in a legal battle with neighbors who contend that the "trailers" are permanent structures that never should have been permitted on that site. McNeely says he's up and running for the 2010 season regardless. "
