On Tuesday, the site plan for the construction of three 2,000-square-foot self-storage buildings in Dorset, Vt., was approved by the local planning commission. The approval paves the way for issuance of a permit, which will likely be issued within 15 days. Opposed parties will then have 15 days to appeal, according to Joseph Bamford, zoning administrator.
The site in question, currently containing the home and electric business of resident Brad Tyler, is zoned as “village commercial.” Several residents spoke out against the project, including local self-storage owner Andy Tarantino, who said he did not believe the project was a permitted use for the zone. But Tyler's proposed project met all of the criteria required by the planning commission's site-plan review.
