The city council in Clanton, Alabama, this week unanimously approved two changes to its zoning ordinance that’ll prohibit self-storage development along its highways. The Sept. 27 vote also created new requirements for metal buildings in these areas.
Self-storage development will be prohibited on Alabama State Routes 22 and 145 as well as U.S. Highway 31 and Lake Mitchell Road within the city limits. Self-storage is allowed in the M-1 manufacturing district, and the ordinance doesn’t apply to existing facilities.
The second change requires metal buildings outside the manufacturing zones near these highways to incorporate masonry on the entire structure. The design plan will also need to be approved by the Clanton Planning Commission.
