The Ocoee City, FL, Commission this week discussed whether to impose a temporary moratorium on self-storage development. The ordinance would affect projects in the general-commercial, restricted-manufacturing and warehousing zones, according to the meeting agenda.
There are currently 11 self-storage facilities within the city limits that are either open and operating, under development, or recently approved. Staff said a six-month moratorium would allow them to assess how self-storage fits with the municipality’s long-term vision, particularly in relation to other commercial developments such as strip malls or restaurants.
The commission will hold a second reading of the ordinance and a public hearing on Sept. 21. Interested parties can attend in person or watch the meeting on the city’s YouTube channel the next day.
