A proposed self-storage facility in Chippewa Falls, Wis., was rejected this week by the city council. The developers asked for an empty block along Dutchman Drive to be rezoned from multi-family units to commercial property, but the council denied the special-use permit request after listening to residents’ concerns.
Three residents spoke publicly in opposition to the project, preferring the land remain zoned for residential use. One expressed concerns over increased traffic. A representative for the self-storage project either did not speak or was not present at the meeting, according to the source.
The self-storage facility would have comprised three buildings and 164 units.
