Residents appeal 290-space RV park planned for Links Golf Course
Residents living on Jardine Road near the Links Golf Course have a filed an appeal challenging plans for a large RV park to be added to the property.
Jeremy and Courtney Howard submitted a formal appeal on Monday. The project was approved unanimously by the Paso Robles Planning Commission on Feb. 28. See report below.
The appeal follows a March 8 meeting of neighbors opposed to the project. The meeting was attended by San Luis Obispo County Supervisor John Peschong. The Jardine Road neighborhood and many of the surrounding roads are not in the city limits of Paso Robles, but rather, maintained by the county. The golf course is in Paso Robles.
Concerns over the RV park outlined in the appeal include water service, sewer service, increased traffic, and emergency response.

Cabernet Links RV Resort and Golf Course approved for Jardine area
The new upscale project will be named the Cabernet Links RV Resort and Golf Course. The 230-acre site is being built by Tom Erskine of Paso Robles. The new project replaces a previously approved plan for an industrial park with 39 lots.
The new proposal includes 290 RV spaces, an 18-hole golf course, a deli and store, a restaurant, walking trails, and a wine tasting room. The project includes acres of vineyards and golf course intended to serve as a visual buffer between the neighborhood and the RV park.
Several neighbors of the golf course wrote letters to the commission and spoke at the commission’s Tuesday night meeting to raise concerns about the RV park. Concerns included of increased traffic, speeding on Jardine Road, needed road repairs, water supplies, and impacts on the local neighborhood.
The project includes new road improvements on parts of Jardine Road. The RV park will draw water from the city’s water system, which has supplies set aside for growth in its Urban Water Management Plan. Water for the golf course fairways and greens will continue to come from an onsite well, but a newly installed irrigation system greatly reduces water demands.
Commissioners approved the project unanimously. Several commissioners said the RV park will be a better fit for the area than the previously approved industrial park.
