A developer wants to construct a new campground resort in Huber Heights. Their proposal includes tent and RV camping, a fishing pier, a pool, a playground, a general store, and a dog walking area.

The Dayton Daily News reports that a company called Wright Way Ohio LLC is seeking to rezone 67 acres of vacant land near Camping World on Interstate 70.

A representative from Wright Way said the company is targeting the area for development, in part, because of a lack of campgrounds in the area, particularly along I-70 and I-75. The representative also said the parcel's location behind Camping World, which is a repair destination for RV owners, is an added benefit.

The Huber Heights planning commission recommended approving the zoning request last week. The next step is for city council members to review the rezoning request during their meeting next month.
