Guaranty Seeking Annexation; Eyes Expansion
The Register-Guard reported that the 13.3-acre site is already in Junction City’s urban growth boundary. But Lane County has jurisdiction over the land’s zoning and infrastructure. The showroom and RV park have long used wells and septic systems on the property as a result.
The prospect of hooking up to Junction City sewer and water systems is driving the annexation push, Guaranty RV property manager Marty Nill said.
But he didn’t rule out a possible expansion of the company’s RV park if annexation moves forward.
Guaranty’s application on file with the city says the company seeks “to bring the subject property into the city, which will make it possible to tie into city services, and also to open the door for possible redevelopment opportunities.”
The company’s showroom and offices lie on the east side of the property, immediately adjacent to the highway. But a large, grassy field owned by the company makes up the western half of the property.
If the city approves the annexation request, “there’s a chance that might lead to the development of a modest RV park,” Nill said. But he added that any plan is tentative at this point, and no firm decisions have been made.
