Community members and commissioners in Los Gatos, Calif., this week debated the construction of a proposed self-storage facility to be built along the Los Gatos Creek. The decision will be revisited at the next planning and zoning meeting on Aug. 12.
Extra Space of Los Gatos LLC wants to develop the property, formerly a parking lot, into a three-story, 80,345-square-foot storage building, but commissioners expressed concern about aesthetics, the size and height of the building, and the potential damage that could be done to the creek and surrounding area. Only one community member voiced opposition to the development.
Representatives from Extra Space claim that there will be no significant environmental impact from the project, and they are working to make the facility aesthetically pleasing. The company has been asked to revise its plans, creating a larger parking lot and reducing the facility’s proposed height.
