The KOA campground sign is down, and now after about three years of no progress at the 17-acre site, so is the project.

Developers of the Kampgrounds of America project on the west side of Highway 89 at Road 3 1/2 North had hoped to open a new campground by mid-March 2012 for 119 spaces for recreational vehicles and 13 cabins in the first phase, along with a clubhouse, pool and recreation area.

Owner Jack Tuls Jr. of Las Vegas said March 17 that he couldn't talk about the matter for at least a couple of weeks, but he said he's "putting a deal together." Tuls confirmed he had the sign taken down.

Work was delayed over the years because a group of neighbors opposing the project wanted a zoning referendum to go before voters, which it did in May 2011. Voters approved the town council's original decision to grant the zoning change to accommodate the campground.

Financially, however, the project stalled when backers no longer were involved in the project either because they were gone from the company or were in a different position at the company.

Town officials already had approved a site plan for the project, as well as water and sewer plans. Plans, however, were approved for only one year at a time.
