Canadian Residents in Donald Oppose Self-Storage Project

Residents in Donald, Ontario, Canada, are opposed to the development of two self-storage buildings behind an old distribution center being renovated, claiming it would alter the flavor of the hamlet.

The proposed development would require a rezoning of the property to “highway commercial.” But residents are worried self-storage units would industrialize the neighborhood.

Along with the proposed self-storage units, owner Jim O'Connor has partnered with Leora Berman, who is heading up a contractors' and green builders co-op to run out of the old distribution building.
The Standard Chemical Co. closed 65 years ago, yet the stigma on the town remains, residents said.
