The Stark County Regional Planning Commission in northeast Ohio reviewed the plans for a new self-storage facility at 1:30 p.m. on May 2. The facility, Oakes Mini-Storage, is to be located on Erie Ave. N.W. in Jackson Township, just north of the city of Massillon.
Submitted by Hettler Engineering, the plans call for three 40-by-160-foot buildings, three 40-by-190-foot buildings, and three other buildings of similar but varied dimensions. Galen Oakes Sr. is the owner and developer of the proposed facility. Oakes' son Garry is the president and broker for Oakes Real Estate.
Massillon is 23 miles south of Akron and 55 miles south of Cleveland.
