Cotulla city councilors have voted unanimously in favor of a zoning change to a property in the Oleander Heights subdivision of town in order that a local businessman may build a storage rental facility.
The council vote came after a mandated public hearing in October at which no local residents voiced opposition to the zoning change.
The property in question is listed as Lots 1 and 2 in Block 53 in Oleander Heights on the west side of the community. Councilors have chosen to change its zoning from Residential Class A to Retail Business Class F.
In a brief presentation to the council at the October meeting, property owner Jerry Farrell said he expects to begin construction soon on a 70’x32’ building that will include eleven climate-controlled storage units. Each storage room will measure 10’x10’. The structure will feature an office at one end and an internal hallway. Parking for five vehicles is included in the plans.
Farrell presented the council with blueprints of his design showing architect’s elevations of the structure and said he has experienced some delays in the delivery of lumber and metal for the project.
A vote on the rezoning was cast after a motion by Councilor Juan Garcia, seconded by Councilor Eloy Zertuche, supported by Councilors Manuel Rodriguez and Reynaldo Garcia. Councilor Alejandro Garcia Jr. was not present.
