SOUTH CHARLESTON, W.VA. — A public meeting to discuss the proposed development of an RV campground at Cacapon Resort State Park has been postponed, the West Virginia Division of Natural Resources announced on Monday.
The purpose of the public meeting is to obtain feedback from local individuals, groups and entities who live, work and operate in, on and around Cacapon Resort State Park. The WVDNR has not made any decisions about the proposed project or responses to its request for proposal and there were no plans to award a contract immediately following the originally scheduled public meeting.
“The State of West Virginia, by and through the WVDNR, has invested heavily in the wonderful amenities and opportunities available at Cacapon Resort State Park,” said WVDNR Director Brett McMillion. “We have every intent to maintain and foster these successes and fulfill the statutory mission of the West Virginia Division of Natural Resources: to provide and administer a long-range comprehensive program for the exploration, conservation, development, protection, enjoyment, and the use of the natural resources of the State of West Virginia”
Although the meeting was noticed by a Class II legal advertisement in compliance with relevant statutes, some disagreement arose regarding the interpretation of W. Va. Code § 59-3-2(e) and the timeline for submitting Class II legal advertisements into the Auditor’s Office database. Because rules for such submissions are still in development and in the interest of cooperation with local parties, the WVDNR has determined it best to postpone the meeting to a later date.
The public meeting was previously scheduled to take place at Cacapon Resort on April 18 and the WVDNR will provide details about a rescheduled meeting as soon as information becomes available.
