Clark Storage LLC received initial zoning approval on Tuesday to build a self-storage facility in Council Bluffs, Iowa. With a unanimous vote, the planning commission agreed to rezone 8-plus acres for the 500-unit project that would be located near the northwest corner of S. 35th Street and U.S. Highway 275, according to the source.
Prior to the vote, company owner Henry Clark told commissioners the area needs more storage. He also addressed some of their concerns, assuring them the property’s lights won’t shine onto nearby houses and that it will have security measures including a gated entrance and video cameras. The site will also contain a retention pond for drainage.
Clark hasn’t asked for any tax-increment financing from the city, and claims the property will bring in more taxes than the land’s current use.
To move forward, the project needs a conditional-use permit from the Council Bluffs Zoning Board of Adjustment. If approved, it’ll go before the city council.
Family-owned Clark Storage operates two facilities in Glenwood and two in Shenandoah, Iowa.
