Back On Track!
Updated: Apr 24
I missed last week's Blog post as I was feeling a bit under the weather, but alas We Are Back On Track.... in more ways than one.
This past week we reached consensus on the overall Design/Master Plan for Mecca Camp Resort and the plan was presented to the Monroe County Planning Commissioner. It was well received and we were informed to take the next steps toward the construction phase by imitating the grading and drainage plan. We also will be preparing our package for submission to the Monroe County Planning Commission and the Tennessee Department of Environment and Conservation (TDEC).
While all this happens, our Civil Engineering Firm will continue to press forward with their design for the septic system and our electrician will proceed forward with the design of the electrical system to support the campground. Last week we hosted Ft. Louden Electric COOP (FLEC) to discuss placement of transformers and where power would be fed in off the main power line at the road.
Bathhouse construction continues and progress is becoming very visible these days. New electrical runs have now been installed, along with new lights, fans, switches, etc. We also have gotten a good portion of the water lines run and will continue this effort over the course of the next couple weeks.
Next week, our friend Dean will be helping helping my Dad while I head back to the DC area for work. The goal for next week will be to get the subfloor laid in to the bathroom stalls and rough in the plumbing for the toilets and the sinks.
Getting the bathhouse renovations complete will be a monumental accomplishment and really set the stage for successfully hosting guests this May.
Our 2021 events calendar is taking shape as Julia and my Mom dedicated time to getting things planned out for the year. We have a slew of awesome events planned, which will include music, outdoor movies, community swim days, corn hole tournaments, hayrack rides for kids, etc. It will be a summer of fun activities that families of all ages will be able to enjoy! Look for our events to be posted on our web site soon and please check out the web site refresh that Julia just completed!
From our family to yours! Enjoy the Super Bowl! Stay safe and stay healthy! We look forward to hosting you soon at Mecca Camp Resort!
