I. 4pm Meet at the La Verkin City Council Chambers and drive to the vacation rental community Paradise Village at Zion, 3800 North Paradise Village Drive, Santa Clara Utah.
The Commissioners arrived at Paradise Village at Zion at 4:53pm.
The tour began at the clubhouse where David Whitehead went over the project including the available amenities and how the community works.
The development was built in 2014 with an additional phase currently under construction. The individual homes are sold and the property management company handles the nightly rentals, cleaning, and yard maintenance. The average occupancy is 45-50% year-round.
The surrounding grocery store and restaurants have commented to Mr. Whitehead they appreciate the vacation rental community and all the business they get from it.
There have been no police issues involving the guests at Paradise Village at Zion.
David explained the amenities at Paradise Village at Zion are like the amenities they would have at the RV Resort in La Verkin. The development will be a high-end resort and will have a similar feel as Paradise Village at Zion. There will be some townhome rentals in the development which will look similar but have less square footage and also some tiny homes which will be 300 square feet.
The Commissioners walked through the development and went inside one of the rentals.
David passed out copies of the proposed RV resort development plan for La Verkin City.
Minutes taken on behalf of the City Recorder by Christy Ballard.
