Rogersville, TN, Bans New Self-Storage Development Along Main Street

In its intent to preserve the city’s historic ambiance, the Rogersville, Tenn., City Council unanimously voted this week to move forward with an ordinance that would ban indoor self-storage developments along a majority of Main Street. The order would also reserve any vacant property for developments that would generate sales tax, according to the source.

The Feb. 5 vote was the first of three readings the council will hear on the subject. If passed, the ordinance would affect the Gateway Corridor from the intersection of Ebbing and Flowing Springs Roads, west to the intersection of U.S. Route 11W. Only a portion of unincorporated sections of Main Street at the edge of the city would still be considered for self-storage.

Rogersville doesn’t have any zoning in place to prevent storage development, particularly in the historic district, according to alderman Brian Hartness, who’s on the planning commission. No new projects have been presented to the planning commission. One storage business near the water department would be grandfathered in, the source reported.
