Re: “Controversial self-storage facility comes before City Council

Many inaccuracies and misrepresentations here. Sorry, Jim, I love your editorials, but I believe you've been misled on this one. You start with "neighbors cite congestion, ..." but the only "neighbors" consulted are business owners who presumably don't live on their property. I would like to hear from actual residents nearby on Dixie Avenue, the ones who actually live there, lay their heads there at night, and have been there in some cases for decades. These are the people who will be most affected by this proposed project, and their opinion is being completely ignored. Dohrman "owns a home on Dixie" in only the broadest sense: he did buy a piece of property a few weeks ago with a house on it, but he doesn't live there, no one does. The true live-in residents in either side of him and across the street have not been consulted. Do you see all those BLANK buildings on the map with the large blue blocks marked "opposed"? Most of those are residents' who are actually okay with the proposal. All the blues are businesses, except for Dohrman's lot. The speculations about potential use of the vacant lot there now (adult entertainment, motor coaches, people living in storage units, meth labs, and such) are pretty ridiculous, based on nothing except a desire to rile people up against what is not an unreasonable suggestion. I urge everyone to drive back there and look at the site; it lends itself nicely to a storage facility and would probably not be suitable for many other uses. I am dismayed at the bullying and deceptive tactics used to try to destroy this project, with nary a word to the people who will be directly affected by it.
