More than 200 people gathered at the county courthouse last week to support a rezoning effort by one of the county's popular tourist destinations. The owner of Paradise Valley Resort and Club, a nudist resort in Dawson County, filed a master plan amendment with the planning commission in August to incorporate and develop land that the owner bought in 2008. The amendment, filed as a rezoning request, asks for permission to build an indoor recreational facility with a swimming pool and add a wine bar to land currently part of the master plan, as well as incorporate land to be used as new RV and tent sites.
