OCS Enterprises sought a conditional use permit for an approximately 103,000-square-foot climate-controlled storage facility east of Atlanta Highway and south of Shirlee Industrial Way. The firm also pushed for approval of three variances, including one that would allow the building to be 360 feet long. That’s counter to a 200-foot-long maximum for storage buildings established in December 2016.
Attorney Christopher Light, representing the company, said the effects of the extra length would be mitigated by a brick-and-stucco style appearance of the building, which he said would mostly be invisible from Atlanta Highway. But county staffers had recommended denial.
