The Chester Heights Borough Council in Chester Heights, Pa., authorized the issuance of a temporary certificate of occupancy (TCO) for Chester Heights Self-Storage.
Originally scheduled to open a year ago, the self-storage development has experienced several delays caused by adverse weather conditions and construction issues. The council approved the 60-day TCO despite inspectors identifying several construction items that have yet to be completed. One of the borough’s building inspectors noted there was a lack of detail in the building plan, and the planned phasing of storm water management facilities for the site was unclear.
Several neighbors living behind the storage development also expressed concern about a privacy buffer. Trees will be planted and an ornamental wrought iron fence will be installed along the rear border to enhance the buffer.
The TCO was granted on condition that all comments and concerns of borough inspectors be addressed before a permanent certificate of occupancy is granted.
The 5-acre facility will open with at least one building by the end of June. A second is also under construction, and the development has expansion plans for two more.
