On Wednesday the planning commission of Wildomar, Calif., agreed self-storage facilities should not be built on the city's commercially zoned property. On Dec. 16, the commission will present a temporary moratorium on self-storage facilities that, if adopted, will give the city two years to create a finalize ordinance to formalize the ban. The ultimate decision lies with the Wildomar City Council.
With three self-storage proposals on the table, the commission met this week to discuss if and where storage facilities can be built in the town, saying the facilities don’t generate any sales-tax revenue and very little property-tax revenue. The city has seven operational self-storage facilities, all on industrial-zoned land.
The commissioners also agreed they want to continue to allow self-storage facilities to be built in the city's industrially zoned areas. In addition, any business that is approved before will not be prohibited from completion.
