Garfield County commissioners want to do site visits before deciding about a proposal to build two self-storage facilities near Carbondale, CO.

Blue Mountain Garfield LLC has proposed putting one of the facilities (three stories, 96,000 square feet) across from the Catherine’s Store Road at the intersection of Highway 82 and County road 100. The other facility, GO Self Storage, would go up where the Planted Earth greenhouse and nursery formerly operated, about a mile east of the main entrance into Carbondale at Highways 82 and 133. GO would have 99,000 square feet in a three-story building. The commissioners will visit both sites April 8, then hold another public hearing April 15.
