The Olivette, Mo., City Council approved an amendment to the zoning code on Tuesday allowing self-storage facilities to be developed on lots of at least 7 acres within the city’s light-industrial district. The move was in response to an application from real estate investor Steve Mirowitz, who wants to build a storage facility at 1290 Diehlman Road on 7.5 acres, according to the source.
The zoning change stipulates that the amount of space provided for outdoor storage cannot exceed 30 percent of the lot area. Public access to self-storage properties will be limited to 7 a.m. to 10 p.m.
Additional provisions require that any vehicle stored onsite must have a current license plate. Site and building requirements include controls for excess lighting, and 75 percent of a building’s exterior finish must be masonry, the source reported.
