Great American Self Storage Project Approved for Santa Maria, CA

The Santa Maria, Calif., City Council rejected an appeal against a Great American Self Storage project on Tuesday and approved the development. The facility will comprise 110,000 square feet in 513 units and 71 RV spaces on 7.9 acres at 1265 W. Betteravia Road. It’ll also offer wine storage, according to the source.

Though the planning commission approved the project in February, resident John Stratton filed an appeal contending the project lacked adequate parking and expressing safety concerns of large RVs backing onto Betteravia Road. He didn’t attend the meeting, the source reported.

Councilmember Etta Waterfield urged other members to reject the appeal and move forward with the project. “The parking is completely covered and is legal, so there isn’t any reason to delay this process,” Waterfield said.

Founded in 1986 by David Pick, Great American operates a 71,200-square-foot location on Enos Drive, about three miles from the Betteravia site. It also has a 63,000-square-foot facility in Kailua-Kona, Hawaii.

Pick is also the founder and president of California-Hawaiian Properties, a consulting and development firm specializing in self-storage. The company has developed more than 4 million square feet of self-storage, according to Pick’s LinkedIn profile.
