Planned

The Glynn County Mainland Planning Commission may consider a rezoning request to allow a self-storage facility to replace the former Sears store in the Glynn Place Mall in New Brunswick, GA. The Jefferson Bennett Development Group hopes to build a climate-controlled building, as well as convert some of the Sears structure into commercial space. The Sears store closed in 2018. The commission also will hear a proposal for a conditional use permit for Exit 29 Self Storage, a planned 14,400-square-foot structure at 272 Southport Parkway. Source: The Brunswick News

Moratorium

The Coon Rapids City Council voted Oct. 15 to ban any new outdoor self-storage facilities in the city. Currently operating outdoor facilities may continue to run in the Minnesota city. Last February, the council put a moratorium in new self-storage sites, and renewed it for another six months in August. The city has seven existing and two newly opened self-storage facilities in operation. Source: ABC Newspapers

Reversal

In California, the Atascadero City Council voted 3-1 not to allow the Dove Self-Storage development near Paloma Park. The city’s planning commission had approved the project, but a council member submitted a repeal of that approval. The City Council eventually agreed not to let the project go forth.
