The city council in Richardson, Texas, approved a change in the city’s zoning code Monday to allow for temporary self-storage businesses as a secondary use in some commercial districts.
However, the council created some restrictions. The self-storage facilities are capped at 20,000 square feet, and proposals must show the remaining retail space is feasible as leasable areas. The city is hoping to find use for empty retail buildings that are too small for chain retailers but to large for local businesses.
