A proposed self-storage development in Vista, N.Y., was nearly rejected in January by the citys planning department because of ambiguity about the towns codes.

Fisher & Kaplan Holding Corp. presented development plans for a self-storage facility to the citys planning board Jan. 25. However, the planning board wasnt certain the development was permitted under the Town Code.  City planners briefly put the application on hold while they discussed if a self-storage business fit one of the categories of businesses allowed in a general-business zoning district in the Town Code.

Planning board members debated whether self-storage qualified as a personal service business under the code. At least one planning board member said self-storage didnt fit the definition. After some discussion and input from the citys building inspector, the planning board determined self-storage is allowable under the Town Code.

The proposed development on the vacant .93-acre lot will include three building, ranging from 1,500 square feet to 3,370 square feet. The facility would include an access-controlled entry gate and video surveillance.
