New Self-Storage Ordinance Approved in Locust Grove, GA

The Locust Grove, Ga., City Council unanimously approved an ordinance amendment at its April 1 meeting that will allow self-storage to be included in heavy commercial zones. The measure permits facilities that are “fully enclosed, climate-controlled and accessible via internal doors” on properties that are 5 acres or smaller. They can be within major commercial, mixed-use neighborhood/district, service commercial or gateway commercial areas, according to the amendment.

A conditional-use permit will be necessary for storage facilities on less than 10 acres in service-commercial zones if they aren’t fully enclosed or offer drive-up storage. These sites will require a public hearing followed by review and approval from the city council, the amendment stated.

Locust Grove is 35 miles from Downtown Atlanta in Henry County.
