RV Park for Shale Workers in OH Sees Strong Demand
In an indication of things to come, pipeline construction firm Price Gregory has requested 50 RV spaces for its workers in a new RV/camper park located in Morristown, OH (Belmont County)—by June 1st!
James L. Grear, spokesman for a Belmont County group that has leased a 20-acre site opposite Doan Ford in Morristown for development of the park, said the verbal commitment came from Price Gregory, a firm with a history of developing modern pipeline construction techniques that are used worldwide.
"We’ve got the area staked out, we have all our permits in order and we’re moving dirt to start the project," exclaimed Grear, a Warren Township trustee and one of the four member team formed as the Eastern Ohio Management Group, who recently arranged to lease the 20-acre site from Janey Doan, owner of Doan Ford.
"Price Gregory indicated to us they wanted 50 sites in June so we’re working hard to do that," Grear declared. Most of the preliminary work to accomplish that request has been completed, Grear noted, including extending water and sewage lines into the area. A temporary road has been constructed into the site to handle truck traffic going to and from the area where heavy equipment is leveling the slightly sloped acreage.*
The RV park will eventually have 275 spots available total, including the 50 reserved for Price Gregory workers.
