The Centralia, Mo., Board of Aldermen unanimously approved a zoning request last week that will allow a former lumber site to be converted to self-storage. Rob and Sara Paben plan to repurpose the LaCrosse Lumber property at 212 W. Singleton St., according to the source.
The project was backed by the city planning and zoning commission, and the alderman voted without commenting during the Jan. 22 meeting. They also approved the couple’s conditional-use permit. No one from the public spoke on the topic, the source reported.
Last year, U-Haul International Inc. tackled a similar project when it converted a lumber yard in Harlingen, Texas, to self-storage. The company purchased the former ProBuild Holdings LLC building at 1218 Ed Carey Drive for $1.5 million.
