The Locust Grove City Council voted at its April 1 regular meeting to approve an ordinance amendment that would allow self-storage facilities to be included among permitted and conditional uses in C-3 (heavy commercial) zoning districts.

“Self-starage facilities that are fully enclosed, climate-controlled and accessible via internal doors shall be permitted outright in the C-3 district provided they are located on properties less than 5 acres and located within a Major Commercial, Mixed-Use Neighborhood/District, Service Commercial, or Gateway Commercial area on the latest FLUP,” according to the amendment. “Self-storage facilities that are not fully enclosed and/or accessible via doors on the exterior walls of the ability on properties less than 10 acres and located with a Service Commercial area on the latest FLUP shall be a conditional use pending review and approval by the City Council after a public hearing.”

The measure was approved unanimously.
