Anacortes, WA, Enacts 6-Month Moratorium on Self-Storage Development

The Anacortes, Washington, City Council has enacted a six-month moratorium on self-storage development in its commercial zones. A public hearing will be held within 60 days to discuss how to address self-storage use moving forward, according to the source.

Though the city hasn’t received any formal land-use applications, there’s been an inquiry from Lance Campbell, principal of Jedi Holdings LLC and owner of Skagit Self Storage in Sedro-Woolley, Washington. Campbell, who’s also a veterinarian, purchased the property at 2821 Commercial Ave. for $2 million earlier this year from Daryl and Teresa Wainman. The couple operated San Juan Lanes Bar & Grill on the site until it closed a year ago. Campbell has spoken with the planning department about potential uses for the property, including apartments, self-storage or a veterinary clinic, according to Don Measamer, planning director.

Several residents have asked the council to keep development land in the city’s core as passive and to not encourage multi-family, retail or general commercial projects, Measamer said.

Skagit Self Storage at 1320 Moore St. offers drive-up and vehicle storage.
