The city council of Wildomar, Calif., voted 4-0 this week to extend a moratorium on self-storage development, including boat and RV storage, until next year.
In December, the planning commission agreed self-storage facilities should not be built on the city's commercially zoned property. The commission presented to the city council a temporary moratorium on self-storage facilities that, if adopted, would give the city two years to create a finalized ordinance to formalize the ban.
The city currently has several storage facilities, and proposals for three more. Since becoming a city in 2008, Wildomar officials have been working to draft their own planning rules related to development. City officials said they fear self-storage developments would eat up too much valuable commercial real estate.
