Meriden, Conn., business owner Peter Novicelli is applying to rezone land from residential to industrial to develop a self-storage facility. Novicelli, who already operates a local storage facility, feels this is the perfect time to seek a zone change, since the city’s recently approved land-use plan encourages industrial building. The proposed site would contain 20 to 25 units, some of which would be designated for motorcycle storage. The desired parcel is surrounded by other industrial properties, and the change would allow the city to expand its tax base.
The City Council referred Novicelli’s petition to the Planning and Economic Development Committee for a public hearing, which will likely take place at the committee’s May 13 meeting. If the change is approved, Novicelli plans to begin work this spring, finishing in two to three months.
