Cheboygan County, MI, Planning Commission Approves 2 Self-Storage Projects

The Cheboygan County, Mich., Planning Commission recently approved special-use permits for two self-storage projects. Robert Andrews, owner of Mullett Lake Self Storage in Inverness Township, intends to add a 1,230-square-foot building to his existing facility at 6123 N. Straits Highway. The other project will be a partial conversion with some new construction at 1771 and 1829 S. Straits Highway in Tuscarora Township. Property owner Edward Shovan intends to manage the facility himself, according to the source. Both permits were granted unanimously, pending approvals of additional project requirements.

Though Mullett Lake is an existing facility and in a commercial zone, the addition of a new structure required a special-use permit. The building will be the same size as the other storage structures at the site, the source reported. The permit is conditional pending approvals of building-code requirements and a sedimentation permit.

The Shovan project required special-use approval for outdoor boat storage and indoor self-storage. The commission also granted a change-of-use plan for an existing 5,760-square-foot building from private storage to indoor self-storage. The developer also intends to build a new 7,200-square-foot indoor-storage facility on the property. Boats will be stored outside to the rear of the site, according to the source.

Surveyor Brian Fullford told the commission the Shovan project would fulfill a need for storage in the area.

The change of use and special-use permit were approved on the condition building-safety, lighting and signage requirements are met.
