211402 11.OrdinanceA substitute ordinance relating to zoning regulations for self-service storage facilities in industrial zoning districts.

Minutes note: Chair Osterman said that the proposed ordinance would change the use classification of self-service storage facilities in various industrial zoning districts from permitted use to special use. Member Richardson commented. The legislation was initiated by the Department of City Development. Self-service storage facilities were currently permitted by right in the industrial-office, industrial-light, and industrial-heavy zoning districts. The adopted Industrial Land Analysis, as part of Milwaukee's Comprehensive Plan, called for updates to align the City's zoning code with the goals of protecting and expanding industrial uses with a focus on preserving land for job creation and employment-supporting uses in industrial areas. Self-service storage facilities could be detrimental toward those goals. The number of development proposals for self-service storage facilities has increased in recent years. The preferences were to review self-service storage facilities on a case-by-case basis and to implement the City's Comprehensive Plan. Ms. Wauck-Smith added that the Industrial Land Analysis was adopted back in September 2021, reflected the desire of business improvement districts and alderpersons, and that the ordinance text reflected the Industrial Land Analysis. Members questioned the difference with indoor and outdoor storage facilities and the intent to regulate large facilities. Mr. Richardson replied. Self-service storage facilities pertained to individual lockers, garages, buildings, and the like. The intent is for regulation of small and large facilities. The ordinance would provide the flexibility needed to make evaluations on a case-by-case basis. Member Richardson moved that the proposed ordinance meets the standards of legality and enforceability, administrative efficiency, and consistency with the format of the zoning code. There was no objection. Members mentioned member Mannan's last meeting on the committee, departure from the Department of Neighborhood Services, and congratulated him on his next position with the Health Department.
