A public hearing before the Warren County, Missouri, commissioners will let the public discuss zoning issues around self storage units on agricultural land.
The Warren County Commission will hear arguments for why it should require self-storage units to have a conditional use permit before building on agricultural lands during a public hearing at 6:30 p.m. Sept. 21.
The hearing will be on the lower level of the County Administration Building at 101 Mockingbird Lane in Warrenton.
This follows a June public hearing before the planning and zoning commission. At that meeting, that board unanimously approved the request before hearing any comments from the public.
“This will give us more oversight to be able to disseminate whether they’re in the right area or being used for the right reasons,” Chair Corey Johnston, the Camp Branch Township representative on the commission said during the June meeting. “So we’ll have a little more oversight in terms of where they’re being built.”
