A proposal to build a 44-unit self-storage facility in Nogales, Ariz., was rejected by the Nogales Planning and Zoning Commission with a 3-1 vote this week.

Nogales Properties proposed to build the facility facing the Arizona-Mexico border near Interstate 19. The strip of land was once a site of cross-border tunneling. The lot, zoned for general commercial use, also borders the Crawford Street Historic District.

Nogales, an international city with a border between the United States and Mexico, has a large percentage of pedestrians who walk from one country to the other through a border checkpoint. Nogales Properties hoped to meet the storage needs of these travelers.
