The planning commission in Bristol, TN, approved a special-use permit that enables U-Haul to rework a former Kmart property for indoor and outdoor self-storage, plus truck rentals. It would have 65,000 square feet and about 750 to 800 climate-controlled indoor storage units.

Steve Johnson and his company, Johnson Commercial Development, own the property. He has pursued a $1.7 million tax increment financing incentive from the city of Bristol. A study began in mid-July to decide if redevelopment of the Kmart could happen without a TIF, but it hasn’t been completed.
